National Geographic Almanac 2020

Tell me – what do you think is the most fascinating thing about this planet? 

Is it the Giza Pyramids?

The winged wonder hummingbird?

The shapes in the stars?

The Great Barrier Reef?

How on Earth do we pick just one? This world is a wealth of intriguing history, awe-inspiring places, captivating creatures and inspiring mystery.

And who better to compile all the wonders, than the amazing team at The National Geographic Society? You know they mean business – but also, they make learning FUN!

Almanac 2020 is chock full of fascination. Trending Topics, Big Ideas in Science, Photos, Maps, Facts & More – this fantastic compilation is packed with everything to enhance your senses, widen your eyes and stimulate your brain.

I devoured the gorgeous photos – a feast for the eyes – and was so engrossed by all the incredible facts and topics, ranging from travel and exploration, earth and space, biology, culture, and history.

Some of my favorites:

  • Quizzes! Fun questions at the start of each section
  • The best of @natgeo – Instagram photos!
  • Food! (need I say more?)
  • Time lines for literally everything you ever wanted to know about
  • How to read the clouds, the stars, follow animal tracks, identify minerals and fossils, guides to birds, shells, caterpillars and butterflies! So much!

I know many see National Geographic and think ‘oh plants and animals and nature’… but this book has SO much more than that.

They touch on so many different subjects such as urbanization, disappearing languages, birth, gender, antibiotics, war, flags, art, women of power, dogs and so much more!

It’s the perfect read for everyone – a compelling collection for ages 12-112, that’s not only brings you discoveries on every page, but also celebrates the 50th anniversary of Earth Day with amazingly practical tips to improve your own sustainability habits.

I do hope you’ll check out this dynamic annual for the 21st century – and I encourage you to celebrate the world – because our incredible world deserves a bit of celebration don’t you think??
