I have been a long time subscriber of Reader’s Digest and enjoy the variety of articles it features. I still remember reading “Drama In Real Life” out of my dad’s old Reader’s Digests that he never through out! Just like the magazine, these books were super informative and I felt smarter after sitting down to read them! My 13-year-old LOVES them too! Here are four things I learned…
1-The Caspian Sea is technically a lake. (it is surrounded by land)
2-Empty Garbage Before Dad Flips is another way to remember the treble clef lines.
3-“Free gift” is a Tautology (unnecessary repetition) because the whole point of a gift is that it is free!
4-If you have 27 people in a room, chances are that two will have the same birthday….weird huh?
These books are a fantastic gift idea for any school aged child (or parent) who loves learning!
