All the Information You Need
Are you a ‘smarty pants’? Do you know a ‘smarty pants’? This book will help you get ahead of the game when it comes to that type of person. If you would like to know more about almost any subject, you could find all the info in this book. The World Almanac and Book of Facts 2017 is just chock full of information about everything!
2016 Special Features & Year in Review
If you are having trouble remembering certain facts about the presidential election (yeah, right! Hahaha!) the information is all in The World Almanac. There a chronological order of the events that happened through the year, and a lot of governmental information right at the beginning of the book.
There’s information on the economy, business, and energy. There are sections on the Military, crime, health and fitness. You can even find 2016 Obituaries of famous people! I had no idea David Canary (famous for Bonanza and All My Children) had passed away!
There is a chronological list of the Territories with State admissions tot he union, which really intrigued me. Do you know the first ‘state’? The information provided by The World Almanac and Book of Facts 2017 says the Northwest Territory was admitted as a state on March 1st, 1803. Mississippi was the first territory that I recognize in the list as becoming a state on December 10th, 1817. Interesting, right?
So, because there are really no pictures in the book, I don’t have a lot of pictures in this post. I’ll apologize for that, because I personally am a visual person. I think pictures make a story more interesting. This book though, it’s information. There is a very small section on 2016 Year in Pictures though. It’s very interesting! So many of these pictures really hit me hard. This year was so full of hatred. Hopefully next year will be a kinder, gentler year.
