  1. Well Done But Heads Up. Overall this book is excellent – the pictures, the content, the excitement that jumps off of every page. One of our favorite things about this book is how it has inspired questions and discussions between our children and my wife and I about various subjects. We love seeing our kids learning about not only new things but also things that really fascinate them and excite them about life. 

  2. My Kids Can’t Put It Down! In this day and age when you can’t get most 10-year-olds to step away from the video games, 5,000 Awesome Facts is a rare gem. My kids are actually fighting over the book! Their aunt gave them this on Friday and they’ve been consumed by it ever since. Even my son who would normally rather go to the dentist than read. Well done, NG Kids. I can’t wait to check out Ultimate Weird But True!

  3. Awesome book! My 7-year-old son has both 5,000 Awesome Facts and Ultimate Weird But True, and he loves them both–he’s crazy for facts. The books are completely different from one another and both fantastic. 5,000 Awesome Facts About Everything is just that. It has facts on flight, pets, food, space junk, movies, Australia, and more and more. There’s a fact ticker, so you can count up the facts as you go. My son really loved the facts on spies, especially the one about Perry the Platypus…
