I always have had a rough time getting my oldest to read any book without pictures and as he gets older that is a little less acceptable, I never understood his lack of desire to read both his father and I and his siblings love to read, but I keep trying to show him how fun it can be by getting books of all genres. For this one specific reason I was thrilled when given the chance to review this book, "Ripley's Believe It or Not! Eye-Popping Oddities!"
Landon was super excited when I gave him this book, he immediately sat down to flip through it (after I made him take some pictures obviously, haha) The funny thing was Maverick also sat down to read this new book, although I think he enjoyed the pictures more. Ever since Landon got this book he has utilized all of the 256 pages worth of unique and off the wall facts and has shared every one with his father and I. This would normally drive me nuts but the fact he is reading and even more so excited to be reading I am thrilled!
This book is a hard cover with holographic eyes on the front, I admit those eyes creep me out, I can't look at the front cover of this book without being creeped out, but the kids enjoy it and that's the important thing.
The book itself is filled with facts and unique information only Ripley's can bring to you, the easy to read and understand wording helps give kids confidence in their reading abilities if you ask me. Overall, I would have to say the entire family has been enjoying this book and we all would highly recommend it.
You can order your book from Amazon or the Ripley's site. Make sure to take a look around either site though and see all the other books offered from Ripley's.
