Just before Christmas, our Elf on the Shelf emerged one day with a number of books from National Geographic Kids including a few from the Weird But True series. It only took moments for my Little One’s radar to zone in on them and squeal… oh Weird But True books, Mom listen to this one. Sorry Elf on the Shelf, I hope you were not reading those! 🙂
Although my Little One loved all the Weird But True books and other National Geographic Kids products in front of her, with it being Christmas, she zoned in on the Weird But True Christmas book.
Even Christmas can be weird — it’s true! Get ready to celebrate the holiday season with wacky facts, stats, tidbits, and traditions about the most wonderful time of the year. Did you know that Santa’s reindeer are probably all female? Or that artificial snow can be made from seaweed? Or that “Jingle Bells” was the first Christmas carol sung in space?Overview: National Geographic Kids
My Little One and I are very familiar with National Geographic Kids products. We always purchased them when they were in the Scholastic Book program that came home from school. From Weird But True to the National Geographic Readers series, my Little One has been fond of them all over the years. I have been happy to get them because when you put interesting and quirky material in front of your child, I have found it to be an easy way to keep them engaged and reading. Even at 11 years old, my Little One follows me around with the Weird But True books saying “Mom, listen to this one….” I too have learned a ton of Weird But True facts!
Being Canadian, we were both totally thrilled to find out the quirky facts in Weird But True Canada.
Calling all Canadians and Canada-philes: Get ready to be amazed and delighted by wacky facts, stats, tidbits, and trivia, eh? Did you know that the Royal Mint once created a coin weighing more than 90 kg and valued at over $1 million dollars? Or that Canada was the first country to build a UFO landing pad? Maybe you’d be amazed to discover that Montreal is the second largest French-speaking city in the world? It’s all weird–and it’s all true…Canada style! In this latest and greatest edition of Weird But True, you’ll read all about the wacky wilds, bizarre bites, and strange scenes of Canada!

It is always interesting to explore your native country and my Little One really enjoyed reading, learning, and telling me about all the wonderful facts about Canada.
It is an exciting time for Weird But True fans as it is their 10th Anniversary and National Geographic Kids is helping everyone celebrate by featuring 10 volumes of Weird But True that has updated content and available to purchase at the National Geographic Kids Weird But True store.
The 10 volumes are all approximately six inches by six inches in size, which makes for easy handling for kids and a breeze to bring with you anywhere. The books are of course colorful, glossy finish, and full of amazing and intriguing facts. Interestingly, if you have all 10 volumes in the series, the spines of the books will form a picture when put together. I have always loved the attention to detail and quality of product that National Geographic Kids has invested in their product. Their books are more than just books, they are well made, detailed oriented, attractive, engaging, fact-filled, and educational vehicles to keep young minds exploring our world. We love them!
