We are homeschoolers and we LOVE books! Did I say LOVE, oh yes, even the smell of a good book is great! I think some of the best books you can have in your library regardless if you homeschool or not are great resource books. No library is complete without a good almanac so we were excited to receive The World Almanac And Book of Facts 2013 to review. This book is in paperback form and has 1008 pages to it. It covers almost any topic you can think of that happened this past year. Elections,Sports, Olympic Game Results,the top 10 news topics and much more. I love the colored pages in the middle that have beautiful photographs of the many stories that made headlines in 2012. I am a map lover and it has a special section with some beautiful maps in it too!
