The popular National Geographic KIDS Almanac is back with the 2021 edition, and you’ll find much to enjoy and learn. You’ll discover cool events scheduled, upcoming hurricane names, a sky calendar, and planned celebrations. But don’t be fooled—it’s more than just a look at 2001.
The majority of the 350 plus pages are packed with information and facts young learners will appreciate for that next homework assignment. There are even several Homework Helper pages to get you on the right track.
I read the Almanac from cover to cover, but most will want to begin with the 6-page index to find your topic. They are arranged in ten categories:
- YOUR WORLD 2021
- AWESOME EXPLORATION
- AMAZING ANIMALS
- WONDERS OF NATURE
- SPACE AND EARTH
- FUN AND GAMES
- SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY
- CULTURE CONNECTION
- GOING GREEN
- HISTORY HAPPENS
- GEOGRAPHY ROCKS
You can also participate in the the 2021 Almanac Visionary Challenge—Be a Kids vs. Plastic Leader. Readers from age 6-12 can enter but hurry, the deadline is December 1, 2020 at 11:59 p.m. ET.
As one can tell from the cover there are fantastic photos throughout, helping bring meaning to the text. The best news? ALMANAC 2021 is a fantastic resource not only for next year but for many years to come. Add it to editions from previous years or begin your collection in this new decade. A fantastic resource!

Books like this are so much fun to look at–wildlife photography is my favorite.
I can imagine the look in your eyes, when you get a copy of the almanac each year. And, it sounds like 2021 is a winner. Am intrigued with the storm names. And, of course I love the wildlife and environmental sections. It’s all so good.
I have this and it really is stunning. Thanks for your thoughts.
