I picked it up for me, and quickly realized how much my kids would wind up benefiting from me reading the book. The book contains a good number of mental tricks for remembering things, and brief inside looks into each topic that it mentions.
I'm thrilled that I bought it, as its a great reference that Im sure I will refer to each year my kids get older!
It's a must have!
In "I Used to Know That" you will find a variety of subjects, covering English, Literature, Math, Science, History, Geography, and General Studies. It is basically a quick book to reference to re-discover lost knowledge. I even love how this book looks like a school ledger, but it is hardcover so it will last. I cannot believe how useful this book is and how much I pick it up. Honestly, I find myself flipping through it all the time and always learning something new, even though this is only a 175-page book.
I re-learned about the planets, famous composers, wars, the circulatory system, geometry and so much more! I really think this book is adorable and perfect for anyone who is either currently a student or someone who wishes maybe they can remember more of what they learned in school! This book is classified as a Reference/Trivia book and is a Reader's Digest book.
Authors of classic literature, fractions, geometry, algebra, the skeletal system, periodic table, U.S. presidents, countries and their capitals, and planets are just a few of the topics covered in this jammed packed little book.
This is an entertaining book for those interested in trivia. It would also be good for quizzing school-aged children or to just remember facts that haven't been needed for a few years.

Great book to refresh your memory on many of the essentials you learned in school! Also, it lists all the wonderful authors and their works. Terrific reference-Published 2 days ago by Marilyn Monk
I have only been able to skim it so far but it is not a readable book. It is much more like a reference where you could look up names of American Presidents or Canadian Prime... Read morePublished 17 days ago by Roseann S.
