    I have always enjoyed learning new things I love trivia and history, so I eagerly devour, books like this one Five new tidbits of information, that I learned from this book, are A Baseball player, Babe Ruth, put leaves of lettuce under his hat to keep cool during games B During President Richard Nixon s impeachment trial, he was accused of illegally raising the price of McDonald s hamburgers.C There are than 137 million items in the collection of the Smithsonian Institution.D In 2004, computer tycoon, Bill Gates, received 4 million e mails per day.E Benjamin Franklin invented bifocals because he was tired of carrying two pairs of glasses one for up close viewing and one to see far away.As Lord Byron wrote, Tis strange but true for truth is always strange Stranger than fiction.

    I considered simply not noting this book since it didn t take long to read and was so disappointing But then I decided that might help someone considering purchasing this for their library or school Don t waste your money This is a wonderful book for very young Jeopardy wannabes but this is not much good otherwise It has factoids with absolutely no explanation beyond a few sentences in the book An example p14 In 1911, a member of the U.S House of Representatives tried to pass a law to abolish the U.S Senate No info is given There is a reference at the end to a website and a comment assuring parents, Teachers and Librarians that they keep this site up to date and encourage your readers to use it This book has everything I dislike about poorly taught history It thinks it is given fascinating info but there is no context I suppose kids are supposed to know that the US Senate was apparently extremely unpopular at one point Well, HOW was it unpopular Was it a power fight between the representatives and the senators Or was there a scandal going on at the time Or something else I realize that the idea is to intrigue the kids into reading My reaction was irritation You mean I have to go to a commercial website to look up the info and then, since I m a fairly sophisticated reader, unlike the primary to grade 4 kids who are likely reading this book, I would have to go elsewhere to verify the info It wasn t that fascinating a tidbit that I m willing to do research And I m an adult who really enjoys history It is assumed that I will naturally simply believe the info Isn t that part of what the newest fad in education, Common Core, is trying to prevent I could go on and on but you get my basic point by now I hope I m not real happy with the publisher, Child s World They have done vastly better quality in the past I hope this doesn t represent a change in how they produce their books Emphatically not recommended.
