Gr 3-5--Brimming with fun facts, great pictures, and holiday celebration ideas, this calendar journal is an eye-catching offering. Each day contains a fun fact or activity, and there's plenty of amusing content, relating to food, history, animals, and other trivia. For instance, readers are informed that October 7 is National Popcorn Poppin' Day and that centuries ago, popcorn was commonly eaten for breakfast. On September 9, kids are told that "California, which became a U.S. state on this date in 1850, is likely named after Calafia, a mythical warrior queen." The information is entertaining, and the design is charming. However, readers are invited to write in responses to questions or draw their own pictures, making it less than ideal for most library collections.--Cynde Suite, Bartow County Library System, Adairsville, GA

How does a fact make it into a NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC KIDS Weird But True book? First, it has to be weird. Our team of editors and writers scour the news, the latest discoveries, Internet gems, urban legends, wacky myths, and tantalizing tidbits to find a fact that's really weird. It also has to be true. So our researchers check every single word to make sure the fact is 100 percent accurate. It has to look cool. Our photo editors and designers find the perfect weird picture or the most dazzling weird design to make each fact jump out at you. Then we put them all together in an amazing-looking book that's so much fun kids can't put it down.
