As a child I always wanted to explore the world. My dad traveled with his brother for work and I always looked forward to his pictures and stories. But when pictures and stories were not enough, I always had books. I was curious about nature, earth, explorations and questioned everything. What, how, why?
But it wasn’t until I was in 7th grade that I learned about National Geographic and Kids Almanac. I was immediately drawn to them. Books like this inspired me to explore the world, seek adventures and answered a gazillion of my silly or not so silly questions.
