National Geographic's Almanac 2019 is a beautiful new edition full of interesting facts, beautiful pictures, and stories to expand the reader's mind. The book is divided up into sections and chapters, and inside the pages a ton of information is presented. The reader gets to know the latest in science topics such as genetics, space travel and exploration, and natural phenomena. I liked the time lines presented at the beginning of each part - it was interesting seeing how far we've come in so many different areas. The pictures were gorgeous and I took a ton of time just looking through them all and reading the captions about them. Other highlights include little biographies on important people in different fields and how they're changing the world, lots of great illustrations and graphics to go along with the chapters and stories, and very interesting information that I wouldn't have known about if I didn't read the Almanac. I definitely suggest that readers of all ages check out this new edition of National Geographic's Almanac as it has something for everyone and tons to learn.

  1. My kids completely love almanacs because they are mini nerds, but anything from National Geographic is so great and I love paging through them. Thanks for being on the tour!
