National Geographic Kids Weird But True! Books Review

National Geographic is a globally recognized resource for education, exploration and research and National Geographic Kids inspires young adventurers through various award-winning channels including the Weird But True! book series, which I’m super excited to review today!

The Weird But True! books are a great way to encourage curiosity in kids since they are full of fun facts for children about the world around them.

My eight year old, Zeynab, just loved reading out the facts and sharing them with the whole family! Facts such as “In less than 15 minutes, camels can drink enough water to fill a bathtub”, are sure to amuse any kid along with increasing their knowledge and giving them interesting facts to share with friends at recess.

Each book is filled with 300-350 outrageous facts along with beautiful and colorful illustrations. We especially loved the Weird But True! Canada book and were super excited to learn that it’s the first country specific version in the series! There were many fun facts to learn about places close to home in Calgary and Alberta!

The Weird But True! series is celebrating its 10th anniversary and has released special 10 volumes full of 350 facts!

I would highly encourage parents to buy these Weird But True! books for their children to encourage reading and curiosity about the world around them. They can be bought at independent book stores, Indigo, Barnes & Noble, Amazon, Target, Walmart etc and will make great gifts! The books generally retail for $7.99 in the US and $10.99 in Canada.
