Time Home Entertainment Inc. and the editors of TIME For Kids presents That’s Strange but True!, an offbeat and kid-appealing look at the inner workings and fascinating oddities of our world.
The 176-page book, packed with more than 150 colorful photos that bring to life the unusual world of the animal kingdom, the human body, science peculiarities and much more, encourages readers to learn more about the subjects presented and to spur kids to find examples of strange-but-true phenomena in their own communities. Written in TIME For Kids’ authoritative and clear style, even the strangest entries are carefully explained and will provide readers with vital frames of reference needed to make sense of the new and unusual. The book will be devoured by young readers both at home and at school.
That’s Strange but True! is an entertaining mix of amazing facts and records about the most bizarre things our world has to offer, including:
Bathtub races and other strange sports
Quests for lost worlds
Plants that play dead
Bodacious stunts and body feats
And even stranger (but true) stuff!
“That’s Strange but True! is a natural progression from kid favorites That’s Awesome! and That’s Incredible!” said Bob Der, Editorial Director, TIME For Kids. “The book furthers our goal of enabling kids to understand the very strange world around them and present the information in a way that is fun and educational for the whole family.”
My son is 8 and eats these books up! I love when a new one is released in these series because he can’t get enough. I should post some photos of how ear-marked and destroyed these books of his are (good thing they are hard cover, it helps!)
