Did you know that a battery can be made out of a potato or that human bones are stronger than concrete? These are just two of the three hundred outrageous, hard to get your mind around, facts you’ll find in National Geographic Kids new book entitled Weird But True.
I grew up playing Trivial Pursuit and find random facts and pieces of information interesting. Adults and children alike will find Weird But True fascinating, educational, and entertaining. Here is a short blurb from the site:
Weird But True is based on the hugely popular magazine page of quirky, fun facts that many readers of National Geographic Kids magazine turn to first. All of the facts in this handy book will amaze friends and family: Animals Superpowers, Chills and Thrills, Eat or Be Eaten, Mini and Mega, Wild and Crazy, and much, much more.
I think it is a fun, creative way to get children excited and interested in the subject matter. It opens the door for discussion and expansion on topics brought up in the book. The pictures are colorful and kid-friendly. I think that it would be fun to read a fact a day (which would last approximately one year). Weird But True is appropriate for children 6 and up, however, as an adult I found the book intriguing.
