National Geographic Almanac 2021: Trending Topics – Big Ideas in Science – Photos, Maps, Facts & More

We rated this book:


A little of this and a little of that with something for everyone. That is what this gorgeous new Almanac from National Geographic has. It has a great many short articles about people, places, creatures great and small, plant life, sea life, outer space, and inner Earth. There are timelines filled with fascinating facts. For instance, the conservation timeline will tell readers humans have been agriculturists for over ten thousand years, developing conservation methods all that time. One can learn how trees talk to each other or learn a bit about mindfulness or get a quick lesson on the history of democracy. Maybe one would like to see a timeline of innovations from the first city built to the International Space Station. The highlights are nicely laid out for readers on a two-page spread. How has our country’s flag changed over time? Readers will be surprised to see the first rendition. The writing is breezy and fun and the photos amazing. This is a great book to take along on a car trip or to keep on the coffee table or for the doctor’s waiting room. Kids and adults will enjoy this beautiful book equally. It is a real winner.
