Fun-filled book will turn you into a fac­ta­holic

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - GOODPOSTER -

FAST FACTS BY HE­LEN LEWIS THIS book is filled with quirky yet in­ter­est­ing facts about any­thing and ev­ery­thing – an­i­mals, the body, food, dor­pies in South Africa and the uni­verse.

Did you know that there are at least 1.5 mil­lion ants for ev­ery per­son on earth? Or that goats and sheep have rec­tan­gu­lar pupils? Or that ele­phants can be right- or left-tusked? And the sun is a star that is 109 times big­ger than Earth.

The ad­van­tages of in­still­ing a life­long love of read­ing in a child don’t need to be spelt out. And what bet­ter way to get them read­ing than with short, bite-sized, fas­ci­nat­ing and fun facts?

This book is filled with quirky yet in­ter­est­ing facts about any­thing and ev­ery­thing – an­i­mals, the body, food, the uni­verse, books and more.

And it is not just for chil­dren. Ev­ery­one can learn some­thing in this trea­sure chest of knowl­edge, whether you are 5 or 50 years old. With no long and drawn-out ex­pla­na­tions, it is a quick and easy read that can fill a few min­utes of spare time or en­sure a few hours of in­for­ma­tive en­ter­tain­ment.

It will help you im­press peo­ple with your wide knowl­edge about ran­dom top­ics and “use it, don’t use it” in­for­ma­tion.

This book is de­signed to en­cour­age chil­dren to read. Even the lazi­est reader will enjoy dip­ping into this fun book.

It’s jam-packed with fan­tas­tic, funny, amaz­ing facts, that are short and sweet, with­out long bor­ing ex­pla­na­tions. It cov­ers ev­ery sub­ject from an­i­mals, the body, food, the uni­verse, books, and games. It should ap­peal to chil­dren of all ages, even grandpa. The au­thor He­len Lewis is a self-con­fessed fac­ta­holic and she has writ­ten sev­eral fact books. She lives in Dar­ling with her hus­band, a boer­boel, two Border col­lies and two cats.
