When I was pregnant with my first-born son, I started shopping for children's books to fill the bookshelves in his room. I fell in love with reading when I was in the fourth grade, and have been an avid reader every since–I always have a couple of books on the go. I wanted to instill a love of reading in my children from an early age, and thoroughly enjoyed shopping for the books I hoped my children would enjoy. Reading books became an important part of our daily ritual, and my children continue to enjoy reading now that they're older.

My boys love reading the National Geographic Kids Weird But True! books, because these books provide a wealth of information and they're fun and easy to read. They're great books to travel with, and perfect to keep around the house for guests to enjoy, as well. These colourful books are a great way to encourage a love of reading in children, and also encourages curiosity about the world around them; from science to food and travel, there is something in these book every child will be drawn to, no matter their age. When kids have had too much screen time, these books make an excellent break from technology where they learn in a fun and entertaining way.

The Weird But True! books not only encourage children to read and learn more, but these books also give back; a portion of all books purchased help support National Geographic's exploration, conservation, research, and education projects.

These books–now over 25 in the series–inspire children to explore the world through text and visual images. We loved flipping through Weird But True! Canada, Weird But True! Animals, Weird But True! Christmas, and Weird But True! 10. Each book is fun to read, and children learn so many interesting facts, as well.

Weird But True! is celebrating its 10th anniversary of the original Weird But True! series, and to celebrate, the 1-10 series has been totally updated with new covers and 50 more facts that'll appeal to a new generation of young readers. These books are available in-store or through They make great keepsakes for children, and are great to gift, as well, for birthdays, holidays, and end-of-school year celebrations.

Weird But True! Canada Contest

Kids aged 6-14 are invited to enter the Weird But True! Canada contest to submit their own verifiably weird facts about their hometown, province, or country at, until January 31st, 2019. Good Luck–and happy reading!
