Weird But True

I spotted this book at Monument Books and I knew right away that it's going to be a hit with EJ.

Weird But True 2 by National Geographic Kids. Actually, it's not EJ who's leafing thru the pages. Even hubby and I have joined in the fun.

Did you know that a hippo's lips are about two feet wide?

Yikes! That's one big mouth. LOL! Here's some more:

A cockroach can live for over a week without a head.
Cats can't taste sweet.
Some robots can identify different cheeses.

I like this book because it's a fun way to learn random facts about the earth we live in. And EJ is definitely hooked. He's even shared in his class that an Ostrich's eye is bigger than its brain.

Now, I am looking for the first edition of this book which I can't find here in Phnom Penh.
