This example is unfortunately indicative of the level of English expertise that resides within this book's covers.
Moving on to the "1000 Interesting Facts":
Most of the "interesting facts" did not interest me.
Some "facts", I would seriously question their validity e.g. "5.5% of North Americans die due to insect stings". Really !!!
Some "facts", as stated, were meaningless e.g "109 of the highest mountains are found in Asia". Think about it. What does that mean? The 109 tallest mountains in the world are all situated in Asia? Asia has 109 high mountains? What exactly is a high mountain and a not so high mountain, anyway?
Other "facts" I could have found interesting, if I had confidence that they were actually correct.
All in all, something to give your kids as a fine example that not everything you read should be believed!

There are many spelling and grammar mistakes also. Not a very good editing job was done. This ebook will entertain young kids on a long car ride. Just warn them not to believe everything they are reading. For example since when is it a fact that The Virgin Mary is almost always painted blue??? Oh and did you know?? Singing relieves stress and tension... Duh?
As far as the book goes its an easy simple ready with some cool facts, however, there are so many mistakes in the typing that it could not have been proof read. I dont know if ifs just on my kindle or what, but so many words run together no spaces and a lot of errors like that. It has a very unprofessional feel to me because of that. It still delivers what it offers but for some reason it bothers me. Otherwise not a bad book. The facts are in small chunks with a title. For example the title might be Coke or Watch etc... Then some facts about that particular item. I happen to love books with facts and interesting or odd stories. Definitely worth the price.
Then there's the hideous grammar and spelling. If the author graduated from high school, he got the diploma simply because he aged out of the public school system. My daughter was a better writer in grammar school than this person who charges for his incorrect "facts." OTOH, if the author is in elementary school and this is his first try at creating and self-publishing a book, then he deserves some gentle correction and a stern warning not to upload any more "books" until an adult has looked it over first.
