Ripley's Believe It or Not! Reality Shock

My Review:

I remember watching the Ripley’s Believe It or Not television show. There are now many books just like the show. This is their most recent one Reality Shock!

I feel this is a great book for children, it can really fuel their love of reading and learning. You can also easily spend some quality time with your child going through the different articles in the book. The articles are small enough that they will not get bored reading it if they are not a book lover.

Reality Shock! is the 11th book in the series. This book retails $14.97 on Amazon. Here is a picture of all of the books:
