If you are like me you remember this book from the classroom from your childhood. Filled with thousands of facts and a great reference for almost anything. We love having the The World Almanac and Book of Facts 2017 on the coffee table to refer to or just look through and when we have friends and family over it always catches their eyes as well. This is one of the few books that is relevant to everyone at any age from children to mothers, students to sports fans, pop culture lovers to trivia fanatics, and everyone in between. See below for special features of the 2017 Edition.
- 2016 Election Results: The World Almanac® provides a comprehensive look at the entire 2016 election process, from the roller coaster of the early primaries and candidate biographies to state and county presidential voting results and coverage of House, Senate, and gubernatorial races.
- World Almanac® Editors’ Picks: The Best Teams That Never Won It All: In light of Golden State’s unprecedented regular season success and eventual downfall in the NBA Finals, The World Almanac® takes a look back into sports history for the best teams that fell just short of championship glory.
- Statistical Spotlight: A brand-new feature highlights statistics relevant to the biggest stories of the year. These data provide context to give readers a fresh perspective on important issues.
- The popular sections “Time Capsule,” “Offbeat News Stories,” “Top News Topics” and “Year in Pictures” also make their return.
Being a homeshcooling family we reference this book all the time. This year was the first presidential election that our 11 and 12 year olds were old enough to know what was going on, they of course saw a lot of coverage on the media, friends at our homeschool co-op and church were talking about it so they had a lot of questions. The election process section of The World Almanac and Book of Facts 2017 was an excellent AND reliable resource for information. This book would make an excellent Christmas gift for anyone on your list, a great stocking stuffer or even a party hostess gift. The World Almanac and Book of Facts 2017 can be purchased at bookstores near you and on Amazon where it ships FREE if you are a Prime Member.
