“One day, Laptops will roll up like a Yoga Mat” (pg 24). In this edition of National Geographic kids, you can learn 5,000 facts about any and everything. From fact about the future to facts about prehistoric times, there is no subject uncovered.

I give 5,000 Awesome Facts (about everything) 2 stars. The title is correct when it says that there are 5,000 facts but exaggerated the “awesome” part of it. Using the term “awesome” sets the reader up to only let them down within the first couple pages.

Here’s a book that will rival the Guinness Book of World Records in popularity. It is filled with fun and interesting facts on all sorts of topics of interest to kids. Each two-page spread is filled with a bounty of facts loosely related by a theme. From animals (zebras’ stripes make it hard for predators to pick out a single animal) to world leaders (Queen Victoria popularized white wedding gowns), from inventions (an iPad-like computer was first invented in 1968) to geography (Prince William’s ...more

Reviewed by Avery, age 9, for City Book Review
This is a perfect book for casual reading. Each category has between fifteen and one hundred facts on a topic listed on the page and are exactly what the title of the book says, AWESOME! the entire review at
Jan 10, 2016 Michelle rated it it was amazing
I give this book 5 stars because it had a lot of information and facts that I didn't know of before. I would recommend this book to people of ages 10+ because it has some big vocabulary in it for older people. Other than that I find this book to be very entertaining and informative and I would most definitely recommend this book.

10YO girl and 6YO boy can't get enough of this. Great for homeschooling; leave it around on the table for free moments in between subjects/lessons.

It was a good book. It is not a short read though. It has facts about literally everything. It mentions things about Egyptians and other things. I recommend it to everyone.
