Did you know that every day on Earth...

You all know I'm a sucker for fact books. National Geographic's Weird But True series--loved it! Well, another book I'm absolutely loving right now is Every Day On Earth: Fun Facts That Happen Every 24 Hours by Steve Murrie and Matthew Murrie.

How many times have you said, "Today just flew by!"? I don't know about you, but I often utter those words a lot. However, how many times have I really stopped to think about everything that happens in a single day? That's where this book comes in handy. Every Day on Earth is a collection of the things the authors thought readers would find the most mind twisting and mind blowing.

Broken up into sections such as living things, Earth, Food, The Human Body and more, young readers will learn why it's called a Blu-Ray player, that Venus has even more than the Earth's 8-million plus lightning strikes a day, that there are 'Goldilocks zones' in space, game consoles are getting smaller and more powerful every year, and more. This is just one of the books you can't resist picking up and thumbing through to pass the time and you'll be amazed at all of the things that really do happen in a single day!
