Gr 3–5—Which famous baseball player owned the world's largest piece of bubblegum? Exactly how does a vending machine determine the value of the paper money you put into it? What classic children's toy was created from empty thread spools? These are just some of the many quirky facts students will find in this series. The topics covered offer a lot of appeal in a fun, informative format. Each fact is presented as a short chapter with accompanying sidebar information. Bright photographs accompany the text. Each volume includes a related but rather basic activity. For example, in Sneakers, kids are given instructions on a "cool way" to lace their sneakers. VERDICT These volumes may be brief but they likely won't sit on the shelves. Consider for collections in need of browsable materials.. Copyright 2016 School Library Journal.
