National Geographic Kids Books: 5,000 Awesome Facts (About Everything!) and That's Gross: Icky Facts That Will Test Your Gross-Out Factor....Review & Give Away!

When I was a kid, I remember being mesmerized by the stacks of National Geographic Magazines in my school library.  The animals!  The people!  The places!  Each page was just full of interesting facts about the world we live in.  Today I am so pleased to tell you about two new books from National Geographic Kids....5,000 Awesome Facts (About Everything!) and That's Gross: Icky Facts That Will Test Your Gross-Out Factor.  Both of these titles are sure to keep your kids as interested, engrossed and amazed as you would expect from books from the great National Geographic.  Here are the details.....

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.

This book is a gem.  It is bursting with fun facts and figures about everything and anything you can imagine.  The pictures are bright and colorful and sure to keep your children flipping along.  My children loved all the fun facts about animals.  Did you know bats make up about a quarter of the entire mammal population (ewwww!!) or that hippos mark their territory by yawning?  My children delighted in learning all these fun facts and loved sharing their new knowledge with everyone they came in contact with.  This book is a great way for children to learn more about the world we live in.  Pick up your copy today on Amazon....




That's Gross: Icky Facts That Will Test Your Gross-Out Factor

This book is to be read at your own risk! Bringing together the slimiest, smelliest, and stickiest topics imaginable, That's Gross is chock-full of foul facts that are guaranteed to make your stomach churn. Each chapter is packed with icky information, wacky and colorful pictures, and sickening sidebars that will make you say "That's Gross!" Kids should hold on to your stomach while they explore the world of barf, bugs, boogers, and other things parents won't like.:) With lively and humorous prose, high-interest subjects, and truly disgusting photos, this book will have kids glued to the page while they learn the facts, history and scientific details of "eww". Kids will be so captivated by the gross-out factor that they won't even realize how much they're learning. They might even discover that these skin-crawling truths are just a part of everyday life!

Well....ewwwwww!!  This book is absolutely, without question, perfect for children.  I don't know many (or maybe any!) children who would not be delightfully grossed out by the information in this book.  My boys relished in the pure gross factor while I internally gagged at tales of bugs as delicacies, "good luck"  rats in India and so many more.  This book was such  a HUGE hit in my house which made even squeamish me able to stomach it.   Pick up this one today on Amazon...
