There’s no question that PunditGirl gets a good dose of the political just by being my daughter! But, I really do make a point for her to see more than one side of the world and give her as many opportunities to learn about the world from other sources as I can.
She’s enjoyed the National Geographic Kids magazine for years — an annual holiday gift to her from my aunt – and has learned a lot from those pages. So when I was given the opportunity to check out the 2010 National Geographic Kids Almanac with her, I thought it was a great idea! I do very few product reviews or giveaways here at PunditMom, but I felt this was a good fit for families who want to give their children a little more exposure to the world in the way that National Geographic excels at!
You get politics, pandas and pets. Kids will learn about world culture, what other kids are doing and where to explore new things!
What better way to start raising a child who’s engaged in the world around them (whether it has to do with politics the way we talk about them today or just the world at large to have a better understanding for the future) than with this colorful and accessible Almanac.
You can keep track of fun facts and activities from the Almanac online at the Twitter account dedicated to National Geographic Kids. And if you’d like to win a copy of the Almanac, leave me a comment about your favorite National Geographic moment from your childhood no later than Friday, January 29 and I’ll pick one person at random to receive it!
Disclaimer: I did not receive any monetary compensation for this review. PunditGirl and I received a free review copy of the almanac which we will be donating to her fourth-grade classroom.
