We have been reading a lot of weird but true books lately. Solana likes the Ripley's books as well, but I prefer the National Geographic series. Here is Solana's book review:
I like the book National Geographic Kids: Weird but True. If you like weird facts, you should look at this book. It teaches you about cool inventions, like the real life transformer, and weird facts, like the 2-headed turtle. If you want to know more facts, read the book. If you want weird but true facts, this is what you need!
