    In this day and age when you can’t get most 10-year-olds to step away from the video games, 5,000 Awesome Facts is a rare gem. My kids are actually fighting over the book! Their aunt gave them this on Friday and they’ve been consumed by it ever since. Even my son who would normally rather go to the dentist than read. Well done, NG Kids. I can’t wait to check out Ultimate Weird But True!…

    My 7-year-old son has both 5,000 Awesome Facts and Ultimate Weird But True, and he loves them both–he’s crazy for facts. The books are completely different from one another and both fantastic. 5,000 Awesome Facts About Everything is just that. It has facts on flight, pets, food, space junk, movies, Australia, and more and more. There’s a fact ticker, so you can count up the facts as you go. My son really loved the facts on spies, especially the one about Perry the Platypus.Ultimate Weird But True is about weird things–wacky hotels, weird looking animals, weird weather, weird inventions, stuff like that. We all love the pampered pet pictures.My 9-year-old daughter likes both books also (as homework distractors!)Both books are great fact and photo books, but not the same like the other reviewer said. No overlap that I saw. We’ll definitely get the next one of these that comes out!…

    You can’t go wrong when it comes to enriching your child’s learning w/interesting facts! This was one of the best Christmas purchases I made. Very good quality, informative content, & beautiful illustrations. Anxious to see my kids excitement on Christmas….

    Maybe it wasn’t a good idea to give my already know-it-all 8 year old this book (lol), but he really loves it. At least now he’s right. :)…

    Our grandson is beside himself reading through this book and his Mom said he reads from it each night and enjoys relaying the information he has seen/learned. Highly recommend!…

    Perfect for an 8-year-old boy who loves learning interesting facts. Any child who loves Guinness books will love this, too….

    I originally purchased this for my son (6). He and his sister (8) love it. They spend hours looking at the pictures, reading the descriptions, and saying “mom come look at this!” I’ve bought additional copies of this book, and similar books, as birthday presents for the kids’ friends. It is a great go to gift….

    Overall this book is excellent – the pictures, the content, the excitement that jumps off of every page. One of our favorite things about this book is how it has inspired questions and discussions between our children and my wife and I about various subjects. We love seeing our kids learning about not only new things but also things that really fascinate them and excite them about life.With that said we also have come across subjects that have not been age-appropriate and maybe not at all appropriate for certain households. There was a section about necromancy, ouija boards, haunted houses, palm reading, tarot cards, and the likes. There also have been other sections where we had to use the power of distraction or skim over some things for the kids. Not sure why or how these random subjects happened to find themselves in this book but they are there. Most of the book is great and has interesting content about animals, nature, senses, etc. I’m just writing this review to give oth…
