Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - RevaBeth Russell
Here is a book that would make a great gift no matter what the age or what the occasion. It would be the most looked at book in the library, classroom, or house. It is filled with photos and illustrations worthy of the National Geographic name. You can read this book cover to cover in one sitting or a few pages at a time. There are useless facts such as a woman who once dislocated her jaw while eating a giant hamburger. Well, maybe not useless facts. Maybe you could use them on a first date or to impress the father of your date while you wait or as was done in my house—to annoy your older sister. There are many tidbits that would delight teachers. First of all, metric measurements are used besides standard U. S. measurements. If you are teaching ecology you might introduce wastefulness: all the thrown away ribbon in a year could circle the earth. Biology teachers would love to point out that a turtle’s shell is composed of about fifty bones or that some green snakes turn blue when they die or capuchin monkeys greet others by sticking their fingers up each other’s nose. A history teacher could spice up the day telling students that Louis XIV of France wore four inch high heels. A physical education teacher could casually mention that the worlds’ soccer cup trophy is worth about $250,000. There are many, more weird factoids. The only down side to this gem is that these facts are not referenced so one does not know the sources of the weird facts. Perhaps that could be an upside, as the reader might want to research the weird facts. Reviewer: RevaBeth Russell; Ages All.
