    7 percent of American Adults believe that chocolate milk comes from brown cows!! Here is a funny one- If Pinocchio says my "nose will grow" it would cause a paradox!! The average male gets bored of shopping after 26 minutes!! Share some of your facts

      TIME FOR FUNFACTS! I got some from different NatGeo Kids books... so you should definitely check the books out! (Worded different) but most are from prior knowledge. 1. In Sweden, it’s illegal to own just 1 gineau pig. 2. The oldest “Yo mama” joke can be found in a 3,500 YEAR OLD Babylonian document.. 3. Chocolate milk comes from... brown cows?! 7% of Americans believed so. 4. WORLD EMOJI DAY!? July, Tuesday the 17th!! 5. Christianity (followers called ‘Christians’) is the worlds most popular religion, followed by Islam (followers called ‘Muslims’) and Hinduism! 6. Soccer (called football in places other than U.S) was originally called basket-ball! That’s it for today

                    Okay, guys. Does anyone have any good writing techniques or, like, how do you plan when you're writing a book. I'm in the beginning stages of this book I'm writing, and I always have trouble with the planning part. Any ideas?

                      I write down any ideas I have, and just let it out on paper. Then star the ones you want to use and number the order. Does this work?

                        What I usually do is make a little list, like characters, setting, and major plot points/story line. Then I write my ideas and use that as my guideline. Good luck! What is your book going to be about? :D

                          Hello, @olliebob! I love to write and my friends do, too. Maybe keep a journal and write a short rough draft.

                            Planning will take you a long time, never make my mistake of going right into the book after less than half an hour of planning. If you are going to make a book to be published, planning will take approx. 1-3 or less or more months, depending on the length of book, author, genre, etc. If it’s a story you want to do for fun, I’ll say take a week or two planning, it’s a huge part of the process. Make an order chart, and basic outline of the story without details. Good luck!

                              Hey guys! I know this isnt really a book or a fact thing but I just got my first babysitting job! Super excited, super nervous. So if any of you have tips on how to babysit or what to do with a toddler, please tell me :)

                                Cary a fun kit, filled with stickers, little trinkets and games! It also helps to pre plan what you are going to do with the kid, but don’t be suprised if you have to switch around your schedule!

                                  Congratulations! I find that toddlers tend to like foam blocks and making towers that they can destroy. Nothing too small, so they don't swallow it.

                                        That's super cool I read that you should carry your own bag with thing like stickers or little toys you would not mind giving to the kids you are baby sitting that would make them have more fun and want you again

                                          Wow! Don’t be nervous, and I hope you have fun. A few things to know: 1) NEVER let the toddler think your unserious. For example, don’t be weak on them, meaning they cry to stay up later than they should, never let them. They’ll think it’s a regular thing, and they’ll go to bed late with their parent being mad. Sorry, not much of an expert, but this is one thing I learned, to be gentle but FIRM!

                                            Hey! If you remember, I was helping a few of you find a good book. But now I may need your help. I like fantasy and that fairy-tale magic thing. If you have ideas for me, please give me an author's name. I'll find reviews & follow your account. ~bookworm35

                                                The Lost Planet is also a good book, along with the sequel the Stolen Moon. Another book series is Savvy, Switch, and Scumble!
