Kids love to read astonishing, absurd, and amusing facts such as these and then share them with their families and friends. The Incredible Book of Outrageous Facts for Kids will have curious readers saying “Oh, wow!” as they turn the pages and read through the 1,500 facts inside. Amazingly pointless, but verified, factoids will gear kids up to master Jeopardy and win at family trivia nights.
Chapters will feature categories with kid-appeal, including animals, sports, planets, dinosaurs, toys, technology, strange foods, superheroes, unusual pets, fashion, movies, weather, and more. Every time kids pick up this book, they’ll learn something new. (Parents also might grab this book as a boredom buster.)
