As a parent of an eight year old that has read the two previous versions of this book, I wasn't surprised when this one got rave reviews as well. As with the first two my son loved learning new facts every time he turned the page. He's even shared this book with his cousins and it is hilarious when they come out of no where reciting new facts. This book is not only educational it's also fun and good for the kids to read on a road trip. It's great for adults too!

My nine year old grandson loves this series of books. He has all of them. They contain very interesting information and are written in such a way that any child who can read will certainly enjoy them. My grandson cannot put the book down once he starts reading it. He is already looking forward to the next in the series.

My son loves these books. We started reading National Geographic Kids books when he was about six (he's nine now) and I can honestly say that these books have been instrumental in teaching him to read. His favorites are those from the "Weird, But True" series. We own the first five books in the series and have the ones not yet published on pre-order.

One weekend last spring, our son actually read one entire 300 pg. book from this series to my husband and I over the course of two days - 50 pg.s three times a day until he'd finished. I mention this because last year my son was sent to a reading specialist because his teacher was concerned that he was reading below his age-level. Although I was happy for him to receive the extra attention from the specialist, I always doubted that he had any real problems reading because he read the Nat'l Geo books to us constantly. Thankfully, I was right. He no longer sees the reading specialist, reads above his grade-level, and even reads out-loud to his classmates at lunchtime.

Why is this so important? Because kids are often labeled as poor readers when it's not that they can't read, but rather that they simply aren't interested in what they are being given to read. My teen-age step-daughter grew up thinking that she was a poor reader, too. That all changed when I gave her the Twilight Series. She read the last book, "Breaking Dawn," (756 pages) in less than 48 hours!

There are several elements that make the Nat'l Geo Weird, But True series so appealing, particularly to elementary aged boys. The layouts are very simple, not cluttered. Each fact is only one or two sentences long. The font is much larger than what you would find in a typical chapter book designed for this age group.

I used this book everyday to start my fourth grade math class. The kids loved the weird facts, and so did I.Can't wait for the next edition to become available.

I am a grandmother and I love to learn things. That's why I love trivia. (Learning small facts about the world around us.) It's just so interesting. I love it and who doesn't want to learn more things,and "show off" a little for other people who end up saying,"that is so cool!",or "I never knew that!!" And it's a fun read for all ages. Buy it and you might learn something....no matter what your age. Good for kids or grownups. Easy to read too.

We have every book in the series and they are all awesome. Both my kids (6 and 9 years old) truly ENJOY reading them. Then later they hear something that triggers a memory of a random, bizarre fact they read and they say, "Did you know that......?" I'm glad they have these books. They are really educational and fun to read. (I like reading them too!)
