From roller coasters to AIDS to Harry Potter to endangered species, inquiring minds will know after perusing this colorful, lively, kids-only almanac. Chock-a-block with facts, features, photos, and illustrations, the completely revised 2001 almanac is perfect for the most curious kids. Information on more serious topics, such as child labor and the imports and exports of the nations of the world, rubs shoulders with lighter subjects: Britney Spears's birthday, and weird, outdated laws (in Marshalltown, Iowa, horses are not allowed to eat fire hydrants). Divided into 36 colorfully tabbed chapters, with such headings as "Faces and Places," "Books," "Inventions," "Money and Business," "Space," "Weights and Measures," and "Music and Dance," the interactive almanac also includes puzzles, brainteasers, and activities. Every page is crammed with information, presented in an energetic format of features, minifeatures, charts, and fonts--perfect for the active minds of young readers. Read it cover to cover, browse, or use it as a valuable resource for schoolwork (and Trivial Pursuit!). (Ages 9 to 12) --Emilie CoulterFrom the Publisher:
