Believe It or Not!
Book reviewer Terri Schlichenmeyer of the The Bookworm Sez column, which is read by more than 3 million people, took a look at Strikingly True and she had plenty good to say about it.
Here’s part of her review.
Loaded with hundreds of full-color pictures and thousands of cool factlets, “Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Strikingly True” is one of those books you can rest assured kids will love to read because of the subject matter inside it.
What they’ll find in here will satisfy their curiosity and appeal to their sense of odd. Because this book is so browse-able, it fits any attention span and several reading levels (although — beware — some of what’s in here might be too scary for smaller kids). And because it’s the same Ripley’s you grew up with, this is one of those books you can get caught reading, too.
But kids will get the biggest kick out of it, so grab one for your young reader next time you’re out. For middle-schoolers and up, “Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Strikingly True” is a smart book to have.
