This myth-busting visual encyclopedia will amaze kids with 13 things they need to know about every topic they love and one “half fact” that dispels a common misconception or half-truth.
Extraordinary images and irresistible fact snippets on each topic spread—from space to gemstones to the food we eat—make learning fun, but it’s the “13½” fact that kids will be most eager to know. Does cracking your knuckles really cause arthritis? Do ligers really exist? Are scorpions really deadly to humans? The answers to these questions and many others are revealed and will have kids digging for even more information behind the truths.
A perfect gift for curious young minds, 13½ Incredible Things You Need to Know About Everything will stimulate the imagination of young readers, satisfy their thirst for knowledge, and allow them to look at the universe from a new perspective as they explore a wide variety of topics and discover the truth.
Learn something about everything with 13 mind-blowing facts plus a little myth-buster about every topic under (and including) the sun! Everyday objects from cars and skeletons to pianos and chocolate take young readers on an incredible factual adventure.
Did you know that one in every four animals on earth is a beetle? Or that white chocolate isn’t technically chocolate? 13½ Incredible Things You Need to Know About Everything includes over 1000 facts on 80 different subjects to satisfy a child’s thirst for knowledge.
Familiar objects – the Earth, a tiger, an Apollo spacesuit, a scorpion – are exploded to reveal their extraordinary insides. Surprising myth-busters give children a wealth of new favourite facts, such as chameleons change colour to stand out, not blend in and that sharks only kill 6 people a year while people kill 100 million sharks a year!
This audiobook will draw young listeners into 13½ Incredible Things You Need to Know About Everything and irresistible information will keep them there!
