If you are having a hard time trying to get a gift for someone on your list...
I highly recommend the Ripley's Believe It or Not! Download the Weird book!We were sent a copy for review and it has been passed around by everyone!
As soon as it arrived, I sat it out and my husband was the first to jump into checking it out!
For one that "doesn't like to read" he was turning pages and reading everything that was printed!
To the point that Broxton wanted to look and he had to tell him to hold on as he wasn't finished reading the article! Yep, he wasn't just looking at the pictures!
Once he was done, Broxton decided it was his turn to check it out...
He has picked it up several times wanting me to tell him about what is on different pages... Yes, we have officially reached the phase of life where everything is a question.... It is good, but it is also not that great when a simple answer will not work!We went to visit my parents the other weekend and both my mom and dad were interested in flipping through to check out the different pages! My tween cousin also decided that she needed to look at it when she came over to visit... I was happy to see that one book would invoke so much curiosity and wonder that kids from the age of 3 on up to my parents (no worries on dropping their ages) could have so many people turning the pages!!!!
But get this...
It is called "Download the Weird" because it is more interactive than previous books!
This book comes with a FREE app (available on Android and Apple) that lets you download and then when you see the "oddSCAN" logo in the book, you scan it to learn more when the story comes "to life" on your phone! In the technological days of today, it is neat to see a book that has advanced as far as this has... It is "Old School" enough to be paper for those that choose to not mess with technology, but also "advanced" enough to grab the attention of the facebook/twitter lovers of today!
Do I recommend this as a gift?
Yes... but only if you get a copy for yourself... Or read it first... Or sign up to be the first to borrow it!
This is surely a conversation starter for anyone... For your College Kid or your Coffee Table...
This is a must have!
