Holiday Gift Guide | National Geographic Kids Ultimate Weird but True Review & Giveaway (US)

My house was strangely quiet so I immediately became suspicious wondering what my children were doing. I went to check on them and discovered my six year old son reading intently to his two younger siblings. What had captured their attention so completely……..the latest book release from National Geographic Kids, “Ultimate Weird but True.”

This generously sized, hardcover book is a treasure trove of over 1,000 interesting, wacky facts. From skate-boarding dogs, the world’s strangest fish (you just have to see the Goblin Shark!) and even Crystal Caves there are 200 full color themed spreads. As is the norm with National Geographic, the photos are visually stunning and the accompanying facts are fascinating for children and even adults too.

This book would be a great holiday gift idea for children of all ages. My own children love this book….my six year old is able to read much of the text aloud and my young ones like to look at the pictures. It is affordably priced on sale at only $15.96 (SRP $19.99) and is available for purchase online at the National Geographic Store.

Check out the “Weird but True” app which is available at iTunes for only $1.99 too!
