I have to say National Geographic Kids’ Books has some creative idea generators on their team.
How else would I be holding a book that features the gross-est, most puke-generating, stomach churning, facts in the whole wide world?!
That’s Gross: Icky Facts That Will Test Your Gross-Out Factor is, to put it simply, bleuckh!!!
You have to have a strong stomach to be able to flip through the 176 pages illustrated with some of the weirdest, ick-iest photographs you will have ever seen.
Yep, I’m talking about mucus flying out of a man’s nose, balls of huge feces…((puke!!))…
you get the picture!!!
Irrespective, your child will learn from all the yuk stuff that oozes out of the book…
and some will even have a field day, chasing you around the house with a gross photograph! ( Like my 6 year old!!)
On the flip side, I absolutely love the 5,000 Awesome Facts (About Everything!) kids coffee table book. (Easier to read through!)
This is perfect for adults as well!
I’m not ashamed to admit that there is so much in this book that I was unaware of. (That being said, I’m not sure who enjoys this book more…Bunny girl or self?!)
Here’s a sampler of some of the awesome-sauce stuff in this book…
- People often resort to eating insects to survive because they are a good source of protein and fat.
- Lipstick has been worn for thousands of years but it wasn’t until 1915 that it came in a tube.
- Steve Jobs, the co-founder of Apple, had been taking home a salary of 1$ from 1997 till his death in 2011.
- Oscar the Grouch (from Sesame Street) was originally orange!
Both books (even though the first gives me the creeps) are great investments in your child’s library. National Geographic Kids’ Books just can’t help themselves…alltheir books turn out to be winners!!
So tell me…
What grosses you out in a big way?
(For me it’s the sight of an adult brushing his/her teeth with toothpaste foam bubbling out…Bleugh!)
One reader will win both books- That’s Gross! and 5000 Awesome Facts
