We had a chance to check Weird But True! series from National Geographic Kids. It is intended for young audience eager to learn astonishing facts about our world. Teddy is not a bookworm but surprisingly he finished reading books in just few days.

Weird But True! Books have great design and colorful illustrations. Weird But True! Series includes volumes of interesting content and special releases like Weird But True! Christmas with 300 festive facts and Weird But True! Canada with 300 outrageous facts about The True North. The facts are printed in different fonts and with corresponding pictures making the books interesting to read for kids. The way information is presented make children curious and can you imagine how many “WOW”s we heard when Teddy read this or that fact. Teddy also likes the size of the books, they are not thick and big for little ones to read by themselves. You can take one anywhere you go when travelling, visiting a doctor or even waiting in line-ups.

It was fun to read weird facts about Canada, some of them were really eye-opening, we did not even know about and a few are happened just around the corner. For example, “Sushi Pizza is a popular dish in Toronto” or “A Canadian Candy Company was the first to put chocolates in a heart-shaped box”. There are also some facts which can be perceived as a challenge, for example, “Some towns use BEET Juice to melt ice on wintry road”. Teddy wants to try this on his own, I think now is the perfect time of the year to do it.

From our experience Weird But True! Books are not the ones you read and forget on a book shelf. These materials kids continue to check and read over and over again, they make them think and amaze how this is even possible? Teddy remembers many facts. He shares some of them with peers and adult to impress. Some facts are so weird like “Some ants carry umbrellas made of leafs” or “Two artists in London built a maze of 250,000 books” that our little one wants to visit those interesting places and see everything for real experience!
