If you have a child who is reading chapter books, there is a good chance they’ve read at least one book in the My Weird School series. With over 50 books in the series, they’ve had a lot of fun at Ella Mentry School. AJ and Andrea have learned along the way too and they are now ready to share what they know. In the newest additions to the series, AJ and Andrea are teaching us what they’ve learned. In My Weird School Fast Facts Geography there are “a million hundred Weird facts about maps, mountains and everything in between”. Did you know the hottest temperature ever recorded on Earth was 134 degrees in Death Valley’s Furnace Creek in 1913? Did you know that the 60 tallest volcanoes on Earth are in South America? Or did you know that by the definition of desert, the largest one in the world in in Antarctica? These very true facts and many more are presented to children in a way that will have them spouting of information like an exploding volcano in no time. AJ and Andrea may never get along in a loving fashion, but they sure do enjoy telling you all about what they know.
Be on the lookout of other topics in the My Weird School Fast Facts series to be released soon.
