LEARN SOMETHING EVERY DAY by Young
Here's a fun, colorful book of odd facts that is sure to stimulate discussion.
LEARN SOMETHING EVERY DAY is a collection of interesting, although fairly useless facts. It is the type of book that could be picked up casually and read in a random fashion, however, once a reader gets a peek at just a few of the unique facts it will be difficult to put this one down.
Here are a few samples to whet your appetite:
"Staying awake for two weeks can kill you."
"Ferrets can suffer from depression."
"Originally brides carried flowers to mask body odor."
"The longest carrot was nearly 20 feet long."
The facts are printed on lively colored pages and include simple but appropriate illustrations. This book is perfect to motivate reluctant readers. Simply hand them this book and you'll "catch" them reading before they realize what they're doing. LEARN SOMETHING EVERY DAY is also a great gift for the trivia buff who already has one of everything.
