“For more than 150 years, The World Almanac has been the authoritative source for Americans’ questions on any subject,” said Sarah Janssen, senior editor of The World Almanac. “The 2020 edition of The World Almanac records the biggest events and issues of 2019 and will be your go-to reference for questions on any topic in 2020.”
We especially like the Year in Pictures section, since the bright, colorful photos help bring history to life in vivid color. Whether it’s Notre Dame engulfed in flames, Assange taken into custody, or the Yellow Vest protests in France, this book shares some of the most poignant images of the year.
We also really liked the Decade in Review section. My daughter is about to turn 10 on New Year’s Eve, so this was the perfect way to cover all the important events that have happened in her lifetime. Very, very neat!
