Product description

Lively and information-packed, this book is literally busting its covers with fascinating, fun-tastic facts on super, sensational topics that kids love. Who knew that there were so many sweet things to learn about chocolate or that a dozen delicious details about peanut butter would show up on a page with a few splotches of jelly to whet our appetites? Keep turning and a terrifyingly toothy shark tells you all about himself, while other spreads lay out tons of tips on toys and games, mysteries of history, robots and reptiles, sports and spies, wacky words, and so much more! A visual feast of colourful photographs surrounded by swirling, tipping, expanding, and climbing bits of information in a high-energy design, this book will satisfy both the casual browser and the truly fact obsessed.

Reviewed by Avery, age 9, for City Book Review
This is a perfect book for casual reading. Each category has between fifteen and one hundred facts on a topic listed on the page and are exactly what the title of the book says, AWESOME! 5000 Awesome Facts by National Geographic has 224 pages of facts. In fact (pun intended), page 214 says, "If the average adult read 250 words per minute, it would take them about 400 uninterrupted minutes to read this book cover to cover." Facts about animals, creepy crawlers, robots, candy, chocolate, and wacky hotels are just a few of over 5000 facts to read about.
