    My daughter brings the books to the dinner table and lets each child read a "vignette" and then they discuss what was read. Much quieter meals!

    The books have something for all ages.

      A gift for a 12 year old girl that reads constantly. Something different for casual reading. The 14 year old sister liked it too.

      Weird but True

      By Claudia

      from Muskegon, MIchigan

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about Ultimate Weird But True:

      My grandson loves any book that has to do with the weird. This book fits the bill. The pictures are great, the information is easy to read and understand. I bought it for him for his birthday and he lives out of state but is always calling and telling me things he has either seen that he read in the book or just information from the book. It is eduactional as well as fun to read.

      Comments about Ultimate Weird But True:

      My kids can't get enough of this book! They LOVE the pictures and sharing the weird facts. I don't like to turn on the TV when I'm making dinner, but I don't really want the kids underfoot either. If this book is out on the table, they are completely absorbed. And then we have lots to talk about at dinner, too! A two-headed turtle? A two-story doghouse? A bison that rides in a convertible? It's a weird world out there!
