With the release of the 10th book in the Weird But True! main series, things just got WEIRDER and it’s time to celebrate!

One of the things we have always loved about the National Geographic Kids Weird But True! books is that they don’t have to be read from start to finish like a chapter book. You can open them up anytime you have a few free minutes to any page for some fun and amazing facts. With topics like science, space, weather, geography, food, pop culture, and just about everything else you can think of there's something that will peek all the kiddos interests. Curious what's inside? Here's a little fun fact out of one of the books: 99% of people can’t lick their elbows — but 90% of people who read this will try! Be honest you're thinking about it right now aren't you? I know I did!

Here is a brief description of the books I received:
• Weird But True! 10 (ages 8-12, $8.99) is the latest release in the main Weird But True! series and books 1-9 has been refreshed and expanded to include 50 MORE facts than the original releases (that’s 350 facts per book if you are counting!)!
