I'm just ending 7th grade. I love facts and statistics, but I really love books such as Ripley's Believe It or Not and the Guiness Book of World Records. The National Geographic Kids Almanac is particularly fun because it provides all kinds of zany facts about the world we live in that interest kids my age. Also, you can pick any section you like to read because you don't have to start from the beginning. You can read whatever section you want at random.
