Got this for my 6 year old son as he is quite difficult to convince to read a book.

This is quite fun. Too many american only references like baseball etc. I thought this book would give a bit of information behind the facts but it is literally 300 facts. Large print with matching pictures but a single sentence for each one.

This will keep him interested on the plane for 20 minutes but that's probably about it. Not really a coffee table book. Also worth mentioning that this book is about the dimensions of a CD box (but 3 times as thick). I was expecting something a lot bigger.

"Weird but true! 3" by National Geographic Kids is a book for the whole family. Our 6 year old daughter, 16 year old son, my husband and myself, we all enjoyed reading the it a lot as it is full of interesting, fun facts for big and small.

The book is published in similar manner to National Geographic magazine itself with soft cover but it seems to be quite sturdy. It is colourful, beautifully illustrated and easy to read.

And even before you learn all the facts from this book it makes you want to buy all other publications from the series.

My six year old reads this book and loves the facts, though I think the book is really aimed at 7-8+ reading age group. It really depends on your child's reading age and comprehension.

Did you know that rat's can't burp or that that diamonds are billions of years old?

The book is small, 6"x6" paperback. The facts are easy to digest and the illustrations are pretty good. There are however a few Americanisms, this is down to the fact that the National Geographic is an American publication. That can be forgiven though it would be nice to see a full UK version.

If you didn't know that a meteorite once hit a postbox in the US then get reading, it might win you a prize in your local pub quiz.

This is a fun book packed with fun facts and good value at this price.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This book is basically what it says on the cover and no more. It is 300 facts and not really outrageous facts. And that is all it is, 300 facts.

Unlike other similar National Geographic books such as NGK Infopedia 2012 (National Geographic), this books gives you nothing more than the brief fact. There is no other background or explanation to the fact and therefore it really doesn't provide any learning.

I got this for my 9yr old son and he read through the whole book in less than an hour. He's quoted some of the facts but it hasn't held his interest.

The book itself is high quality and glossy albeit without the stunning photographs you might expect from National Geographic.

This book is filled to the brim with bright colourful pictures, funky text and weird and wonderful snippets of information to delight and amuse kids (and adults). My kids read it several times, dipping into it, skimming through it, opening it at random to see what they'd find, but they didn't put it down until they'd read the whole thing, so it's great for holding their attention and giving them interesting educational facts.

The only downside was that some of the facts were so interesting that we'd have quite liked to find out more about them, but you get a one sentence fact and no further information - a wee internet link for those who wanted to follow up further would have been a welcome addition.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
My kids read this cover to cover the moment it arrived in the post. there were giggles and 'yuks' and surprised yelps as they read through the facts covered in this book. Each fact is covered in only one sentence, just long enough for a child to read, digest and regurgitate at a later date. Funny facts, strange facts and stuff you thought you should know already. They constantly still say to me 'did you know....?'. My 10 year old loves science and nature facts and this book is crammed full of them.

Kept them highly amused for an hour and they still pick up the book from time to time to re-absorb some fact they may have overlooked or forgotten.

Good value, money well spent.

Trying to get my 11yr old boy to read a book is hard work. I don't want to make him read one, I want him to enjoy picking up a book.
I know this isn't a novel, but just seeing him carrying this book round the house reading facts out to everyone was a real joy.
Here is what he wrote:

Wierd but true book 3 is a great and colourful book to read , easy to read and suitable for any age this book has 300 facts in it
some facts are incredable strange e.g A group of birds are called a squabble. But my favourite one is Eagles can swim if they
are bald. after reading one book you cant wait to read the others, like me. WARNING: you can get preety freaked out by some
of the facts.

I am a pensioner and I found this book fascinating.
I asked my 20 yr old daughter did she like it and she said it was probably aimed at an age range of 8 to 11 yrs of age.
The facts are good and it is very colourful/colorful but I think it could have been done more creatively. For example, 'Some moths drink the tears of elephants.' is a great fact. We have the writing + 1 tear - which is pathetic. There is more scope to create a beautiful image here but it has been missed. Or perhaps I am missing something. My wife thinks my brain is 100% water, but I showed her in this book that the human brain is about three quarters water. Assuming I have a human brain of course.
