I’m sure you have heard of National Geographic if it’s either from their video’s or pictures from all over the world, But I had no idea they had National Geographic just for the kids!
They came out with these books called “Weird but true!” and let me tell you they have some info I never knew about either.
We’ve been reading all 4 books for the past month and both of my kids have been enjoying them. I love seeing my 10 year old just picking up the book and reading them without me telling him to read a book. My son is the type of kid that does not like sitting and just reading. So it makes me feel like a proud mama when I see him reading on his own and learning new facts from the “Weird but True!” books.
Info About “Weird But True!” Books:

Also may I add I’ve been learning a lot new facts that I never knew about with my kids!
My son will come up to me and say “MOM! did you know ….” and I myself a grown almost 30 year old woman will be shocked at a new fact that I never knew about…..😂
