Technology is all around us, but I enjoy a nice hard copy book ALL THE TIME.  I used to take our tablet when we went places, such as the doctor, to keep Broxton entertained... but that started to really bother me... So, I was happy when the Fact or Fib books from Sterling Publishing showed up in the mail.
First of all, the size of these are perfect!  They are around 5x7 and perfect to throw in my purse!
We have taken them with us to dinner and to doctor appointments...

The thing I have noticed?
I am having to do things a bit different... In the book, they give you a 3 statements -  then you turn the page and it tells you which 2 are facts and which one is a fib... Broxton was not really understanding what I meant when I was telling him one of the statements I read was false, so we started changing the way we read it and instead of making him guess the true/false I would just read them to him.. Telling him from the start what was true and what was false.  I enjoyed it as I learned all sorts of information that I never knew before.

What's right and what's wrong?: Mars is the hottest planet. Your nose can remember 50,000 different scents. Some modern artificial hands are controlled by the patient's own muscles. Check it out, take a guess, and see how you do! These fun fact books cover space, the human body, and technology.

Do you take books along to read when you go places, or are you more into electronics now?

  1. This sounds fun. It's really, really funny when the one that sounds the most outrageous is the one that is the truth. :)
