Facts, reference, and record books are some of our most popular in the kid's section. Many of them have similar text with graphics rotated out from year to year, but every once in a while I find a new one that I get excited about. This year that book is 13 1/2 Incredible Things You Need to Know about Everything! On each page spread you get thirteen facts on one topic and then the extra half fact that dispels or clarifies a common misconception. For example, on the page on color we get this bonus fact: "It used to be thought that chameleons changed color for camouflage, but most of the time they do it to send a signal - to express their mood or attract a mate - or to reulate their temperature." This is a fantastic collection of facts on topics ranging from bones to saturn and from insects to vikings! A great addition to the kid's reference section.
This myth-busting visual encyclopedia will amaze kids with 13 things they need to know about every topic they love and one "half fact" that dispels a common misconception or half-truth.
