I really like this book! It has exciting facts, and even a section with Freaky weather! This book is wonderful because you rarely find books that are educational AND fun to read. I was very excited to get home and start reading it after I picked it up from the bookstore. In fact, I was so excited I had to0 start reading it on the ride home! It is a HUGE book, so I haven't completely finished reading it, but I have skimmed through so many pages that I reckon I have read about half of it. Anyways, ...more

I still get excited about the school book fair, and I went over my self-imposed limit of $10 to buy this book -- and it was worth every penny! She read it non-stop for days, even carried it back and forth to school. And I just found a picture she drew of herself reading it, with a bunch of other kids around her, asking to borrow it! (She could write/direct/star in their next commercial.) It is incredibly rewarding to see her enjoy something so educational!
this was a pretty good book

Most of the information was in the 2010 almanac, but it had some new additions and cool facts. I look through it a lot and consult it for homework help and country's flags.
