Review - This book is so disgusting, but in a good way! From the moment I opened it all I could think about was when my son was getting home from school! This was just the book for him! He is eight years old and comes up with his own gross facts all the time! Now he will have an entire book and not have to make up his own! He also has a really hard time finding books to read and is supposed to read 50 pages a week. The past couple weeks he has actually looked forward to his reading homework! That’s Gross! was just as fascinating for my as it was for my eight-year-old! I would recommend it to anyone who doesn’t have a weak stomach!
5,000 Awesome Facts (About Everything!): This book is literally busting its covers with fascinating, fun-tastic facts on super, sensational topics that kids love. Who knew that there were so many sweet things to learn about chocolate or that a dozen delicious details about peanut butter would show up on a page with a few splotches of jelly to whet our appetites? Keep turning and a terrifyingly toothy shark tells you all about himself, while other spreads lay out tons of tips on toys and games, mysteries of history, robots and reptiles, sports and spies and wacky words. A visual feast of colorful photographs surrounded by swirling, tipping, expanding, and climbing bits of information in a high-energy design, this book will satisfy both the casual browser and the truly fact obsessed.
Review – These books both came while my kids were at school. I had set aside a couple hours to clean my house but ended up on the couch for the rest of the afternoon reading 5000 Awesome Facts! It is my new favorite book and has filled my brain with hundreds of things I didn’t know before! I actually feel extremely smart after reading this book! When everyone got home, I had it out at the dinner table and read facts while we were eating. The whole family thought it was so interesting and we actually had a great time discussing the crazy, but true, facts about a wide variety of subjects! This book has been in every room of our house over the past couple of weeks and I would recommend it to EVERYONE! It would make a great gift for the holidays!
That’s Gross: Icky Facts that Will Test Your Gross-Out Factor is available on Amazon and retails for $12.95. 5,000 Awesome Facts (About Everything!) is also available on Amazon and retails for $19.95.
