      First in this review I would like to thank national geo for providing this book and the DOGOteam for choosing me to win one of the copies. Its amazing! I love it so much! Ok now for my review <3 - Did you know , Harry Potter characters Sirius Black and Bellatrix Lestrange were named after stars? Or did you know The word "cookie" comes from the Dutch word koekje which means "small cake". Another interesting fact is Lightning flashes more than 44 times each second around the world! All these facts were in this book and there are so many (192 pages to be exact) great pages of facts, I highly recommend it!!!! Thank you again for the great book!!!!

                      This book seems awesome even though I haven't seen it. But National Geographic is one of the best series for me and I would like this book even though I haven't read this.
