This series gives kids the tools to bust wild and wacky myths from around the world. The myths reveal a broad range of historical and scientific truths that keep kids learning while interacting with their favorite fictional "facts." This is the book that will put to rest rumors, misconceptions, superstitions, and flat out lies that you hear everyday — also known as the book your mom never wanted you to see. Want to make that face for hours? Go ahead, it'll never freeze like that. Enjoy an all-you-can-eat buffet and go swimming immediately after? A-ok. Have your dog eat off the same plate as you because his mouth is cleaner than yours? Better think twice on that one. Series Information: Since 1888, the National Geographic Society has been a resource for knowledge about science, nature, and culture from around the world. Presenting groundbreaking photography and research in a range of formats, National Geographic offers great nonfiction for readers of all ages and levels.
