It's Weird, but True!

by: 
Rachel, Standley Lake Library

Did you know that "a giant squid's eyeball can be as big as a human head"?
Or that "the most overdue library book was 288 years late"?
Or how about "if you counted all the hours Angry Birds fans have spent playing the game, it would add up to more than 200,000 years"?
Weird, right? But true!

Here are some more questions for you:
Do you know what Barbie's full name is?
How much an elephant's tooth weighs?
How fast lightning is moving when you see it?

You can find answers to these questions and more in this great series from National Geographic: Weird but True!
The books in this series are full of fascinating and weird facts! Find them at your local library today!
