World Almanac for Kids 2007 Reviews:

"The World Almanac for Kids 2007 is chock-full of vivid colors and splashy designs tailor-made for your very own flat-screen, hi-def, video-game generation. It isàfull of facts and figures that will amuse, amaze and inform."

- Washington Post July 23, 2006

don't be surprised if adults helping out with the homework don't find themselves irresistibly thumbing through àThe World Almanac for Kids 2007 à. The standard version of The World Almanac and Book of Facts, which has been around since 1868, is a thick book with no-nonsense blocks of text and columns of statistics. The children's version is quite the opposite - a vivid, heavily illustrated volume with snippets and chunks of information, lists of facts, and attention-grabbing graphics."

- Associated Press August 1, 2006

"à they'll be packing this book in their beach bags, camp sacks or suitcases to Grandma'sà.If you want to keep your kids reading this summer, pick up The World Almanac for Kids 2007à. They'll love you for it, and so will their teachers."

- Terri Schlichenmeyer -Syndicated 126 newspapers July 13, 2006

"The World Almanac for Kids 2007 makes perfect back-seat reading for these kidsàPaired with a companion volume, YO! I Know: Brain-Building Quizzes, there's the potential for hours of road-trip fun and learning for the whole family."

- Knight Ridder News Service July 11, 2006

"The youngster who gets into its pages filled with information on all manner of timely and timeless topics is going to get a head start in school and life."
