I LOVE DK! ~ An All-Time Favorite…

Maybe we’re kind of an interesting bunch around here…but we thrive on learning amazing (and sometimes very odd) facts. 😉 In fact, it wasn’t until I married an “interesting and odd fact lovin’ husband” and gave birth to our first son (who is now in his pre-teen years and has also developed a fascination for all kinds of unique facts and information), that I realized how much FUN (and even slightly addicting) it can be to delve into the world of myth-busting, interesting, unique and sometimes incredibly odd facts.

Since we’ve discovered how much fun all these facts can be and how great it can be to have them in your brain so you can bring them up to your friends and family at the most opportune times, we’ve been on the lookout for books that continue to build on our collection of fun and amazing facts. A favorite this year has definitely been 13½ Incredible Things You Need to Know About Everything from DK Canada. It was published this fall and has been read countless times in our home already…especially by our fact-lovin’ pre-teen!

Let me just whet your appetite a little and you will quickly realize how easy it is to get sucked into the fun of learning new facts! *wink* A few of the questions that are answered in this myth-busting visual encyclopedia are: Does cracking your knuckles really cause arthritis? (I’ve always wondered about that….) And do aurora lights happen only at night? Hmmmm….there’s lots to learn in this world of ours and the best part is that we CAN make it FUN!

Books such as 13½ Incredible Things You Need to Know About Everything ignite the drive for kids (and adults too!) to start digging for more information and to enjoy learning. Sometimes I feel like the love of learning is a bit of a lost art…but when you get the right books and ideas into our kids’ hands and minds we really can begin to love learning again. DK Canada is one of our all time favorite places to shop for books that inspire, motivate and help us to ‘come alive’ and love to learn! There’s no doubt about it…we love DK!
