The Old Farmer’s Almanac for Kids is chock-full of fun facts and information that will dazzle classmates and teachers alike.
Summer vacation is coming to an end, and The Old Farmer’s Almanac for Kids is here to help kids everywhere jump back into classes. Full of fascinating facts, quirky stories, believe-it-or-not info about the world, and hands-on projects, The Old Farmer’s Almanac for Kids will ready young people to make school as interesting as summer vacation (or as close as it can be).
The Almanac for Kids is packed with fun crafts and games that kids can use to make their back-to-school transition easier. Here’s an idea: Why not show up on the first day of school with a bird feeder made out of an orange rather than a boring old apple? Or perhaps a rock paperweight decorated with the teacher’s name? Kids can keep recess fun by sharing their new knowledge about disc golf and pogo sticks as well as about America’s favorite pastime, baseball!
The Old Farmer’s Almanac for Kids is already a hit, but don’t take our word for it—listen to its young readers. Naomi said, “I brought it to school once, and every 5 minutes I had some cool fact to tell my friends and my teacher!” Maria agreed:“I really like the garden and nature sections because my teacher is a big gardener and I like to share cool little facts with her.” Will brought it to school every day and observed, “It told me fun stuff. I learned so much, and I’m popular at school!” Here are some of these kids’ favorite facts to talk about at school:
· Triskaidekaphobia: the word for the fear of the number 13
· Ostriches lay the largest bird eggs. They weigh about 3 pounds and are the size of a small football!
· Use crickets to tell the temperature! Crickets chirp faster when it’s warmer and slower when it’s colder. For Fahrenheit degrees, simply count the chirps in 14 seconds and then add 37!
