The National Geographic Kids 2020 Almanac is Available Now

National Geographic Kids Almanac 2020
Photo-A-Day 2.0 #00127

Today the National Geographic Kids 2020 Almanac has been released. We were fortunate to receive and advanced copy of this beautiful almanac for free from National Geographic. Andrew took it and immediately began reading and pouring through the beautiful photos. I’ve always enjoyed National Geographic. When I was a kid they did not make these almanacs specifically for kids like they do now. In fact the Almanac is celebrating its 10th anniversary. I had the full on magazine sent to me monthly by my Aunt. The photos have always been outstanding and this Kids Almanac is no exception. The almanac is $14.99 and packed with so many great features.

  • Fun and games, including activities, jokes, quizzes and comics
  • Practical resources, including homework help and fast facts and maps of every country
  • Exciting sections on pop culture, cool technology, extreme exploration and more
  • Lighthearted favorites like the “Cutest Animals of 2020!”

National Geographic opens up the world to kids because of the variety of topics and how they immerse kids into so many great experiences and places. The National Geographic Kids Almanac is designed to inspire young readers to be the change they want to see in the world around them, encouraging them to become more involved environmentally, socially and in other ways. Inside the almanac kids will learn about the adventures of real-life National Geographic explorers:

  • Christine Chen, geologist and climate scientist
  • Elizabeth Kapu'uwailani Lindsay, anthropologist and filmmaker
  • Guillermo de Anda, underwater archaeologist
  • Enric Sala, marine ecologist
  • Katey Walter Anthony, aquatic ecosystem ecologist
  • Kakani Katija, bioengineer
  • Krithi Karanth, conservation scientist
  • Barrington Irving, pilot
  • Brian Skerry, underwater photographer

There is a special contest happening around this year’s almanac. In this year’s edition, National Geographic Kids launches the 20/20 Visionary Challenge, asking readers to imagine the world 10 years from now and to picture a positive change, invention or discovery they’d like to see become reality, in whatever area interests them: animals, people, places, science, technology or beyond — the sky’s the limit! Kids will be able to read some of their great ideas in next year’s Almanac 2021.

Inspiration and information on how to submit 20/20 Visionary Challenge entries, as well as other digital extras, can be found at natgeokids.com/almanac. Continue reading The National Geographic Kids 2020 Almanac is Available Now

Wearing His Nat Geo PleyBox Shirts

Zebra Shirt

It was the last day of camp for both of the kids. Andrew wanted to walk over and I had to get to the gym early so I drove over before Allison left with Eva. I left my car in the parking lot and walked home. When it was time for Andrew and I to walk over my car was there so I could zip right off to the gym and get home. I had to get home for a Twitter Party that I was co-hosting. I do a couple a month on Friday mornings. It helps bring in some money.

Another thing that helps bring in some money is being an affiliate for companies like Pley. Andrew and I unbox two Pley subscriptions the National Geographic one and the Hot Wheels one. They are both great boxes and we enjoy them very much. Andrew got to wear some of his t-shirts from the National Geographic Pleyboxes this past week and he liked the Zebra one so much he wore it twice. I made sure to get a photo of him wearing it by the Zoo entrance.
