National Geographic Kids Almanac 2018 Prize Pack #Giveaway


     Over this summer I really wanted to be sure the boys did not slip behind in their skills.  They both attended a month of summer school.  But the month of July we were on our own.  We didn't stick to the regular reading and math activities I planned to do.  I admit I wanted a simple relaxing summer too.  But we did receive the National Geographic Kids Almanac 2018 to help us out.


     The Nat Geo Kids Almanac 2018 is full of fun facts and interesting information. It is a great way to keep their brains working.  The almanac is full of incredible photos.  It also has crafts, activities, and fascinating features about animals, science, nature, technology, and more.  There is also a new feature on engineering and technology, space and Earth, and life sciences.    The contents includes:

  • Your World 2018
  • Awesome Exploration
  • Amazing Animals
  • Going Green
  • Engineering and Technology
  • Wonders of Nature
  • Fun and Games
  • Space and Earth
  • Culture Connection
  • Life Science
  • History Happens
  • Geography Rocks
     It was fun to read some of the interesting facts in this book.  Did you know that the Chinese Soft-Shelled Turtle pees from its mouth.... gross I know, but interesting.  In Spain, "Pasta" is a slang term for money. A polar bear can smell a seal on the ice from 20 miles away. About 5,200 Hawksbill Sea Turtles hatch on Hawaii's shores each year.  And this is a very small amount of interesting facts you can learn in this book.


     We were also sent a super-sized toss and catch game.  It is shark-themed too!  It is great for in and out of the pool.  Even as summer ends this book will continue to be one we can learn from.  Getting back into school I really like the geography section.  It will be great when Jayden is studying about different countries.  
   


Win it:  One (1) Arizona Mama reader will win a National Geographic Kids Almanac 2018 Prize Pack including the Shark Themed Toss and Catch game.
