At the start of the 21st century, more than 6 billion people are alive in the world. Scientists have mapped out the entire DNA code in humans, and learned that the human genome contains 30,000 to 40,000 genes (not much more than the roundworm, with 20,000!). Ichiro Suzuki of the Seattle Mariners is the only player in baseball's Major Leagues with his first name on the back of his jersey. And for the first time in American history, a first lady, Hillary Rodham Clinton, wife of former president Bill Clinton, is elected to public office--she is a U.S. senator from New York.
All these scintillating facts and many, many more can be found in the revised and updated World Almanac for Kids 2002. Packed with facts, features, photos, and illustrations, this children's almanac is perfect for the most curious readers (grownups might want to sneak a peek, too). Blending weightier topics (ongoing violence in the Middle East, endangered species, hurricanes) with lighter subjects (tennis stars Venus and Serena Williams; pop musicians 'N Sync; the first hamburger, served in 1895 at Louie's Lunch in Connecticut), this is a fabulous and fun resource for home or school. Divided into 37 colorfully tabbed chapters, with such headings as "Faces and Places," "Books," "Buildings and Bridges," "Environment," "Military," "Weights and Measures," and "United States," the almanac also includes puzzles, "Laughs," 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. (Ages 9 to 12) --Emilie Coulter
