Each full-color page is packed with factual information, stunning photographs and diagrams exploring a specific item. You receive 13 facts and one half fact which dispels a popular myth about the topic.

This book measures 250.825 x 301.625 mm and is recommended for readers from 8 to 12 years. Andrew is 6 and so interested in this book he has been trying to read it on his own. He has been reading through each fact (and spelling words out loud he doesn’t know yet so I can tell him what they are) and then asking me “Mommy did you know that?” Often times I did not know the information he is sharing with me.

Drew is utterly fascinated with these pages:

  • Exploded Earth
  • Top Cat
  • Prehistoric Creatures
  • Shark Attack
  • Rock Stars
  • Animal Kingdom
  • Get Cracking
  • Amazing Amphibians
  • Whale Tale
