Praise for VOLUME 1: “The book is laid out in a fun and attractive format that allows kids to feel like they are breezing through it, making it ideal for reluctant or struggling readers…. An appealing, accessible book for kids who enjoy trivia and learning new things.” --Kirkus Reviews
Praise for VOLUME 2: "... introduces inquisitive readers to even more fabulously random things they didn’t know they wanted to know. With this second book in the series, readers will learn if birds sweat, how old they would be on Mars, what happens to astronauts’ urine when they’re in space, where hot chocolate comes from, and even whether pigeons can do math. While many of the questions lean toward the sciences, some important historical subjects are covered too, such as information about Harriet Tubman and Rosa Parks. The book’s format features bright pictures and collages on the pages where the questions are posed, with the answers shown on the following page. Each answer is expanded upon as well as supplemented by an “Instant Genius” fact that readers will enjoy impressing friends and family with. A variety of font styles, sizes, and colors as well as informational text boxes make the pages lively and interesting without appearing overly cluttered. The layout makes the book feel accessible to a range of ages and reading abilities; it is well suited for browsing independently or sharing in groups.A fun read for anyone curious about the world’s oddities." -- Kirkus Reviews
