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!

These Reader’s Digest books for kids can be purchased on the Reader’s Digest website and retail for $9.99 each.

It's been a while since I've seen one but I always liked the section where people would write about funny things that happened on their jobs. I also loved the one with funny stories from the military.
