It’s time for more Holiday Gift Guide goodies—are you ready?  Here we go!


My children love books and I’ve tried since they were all very young to get them as interested in reading as possible!  Thankfully my interest in reading (and reading to them) has helped my oldest daughter’s become excellent readers and has made my youngest children eager to follow in their older siblings footsteps!


My oldest daughter, Taylor, has been reading at the  college level since the 5th grade (she’s currently in 7th grade) and she amazes me with how much  information she retains and how interested she is in a variety of subjects!  One of her favorite subjects is science and one of her favorite things to read about are interesting facts—that’s why I was super excited when we were given the chance to review Ripley’s Believe it or Not!  Strikingly True—it was right up her alley!


Ripley’s Believe it or Not!  Strikingly True, is Ripley’s newest annual in its multimillion bestselling series!  Strikingly True is an all-new collection of the strangest stories from around the globe.  With it’s eye-catching (literally) red and silver holographic foil cover—your children and even your house guests won’t be able to leave this book on the shelf!3d-book8-cover


“ A mind boggling array of incredible and bizarre facts, stories, interviews, lists and features are all presented in a bright new design.  Look out for a special section on weird Olympic facts, and some stunning features on tattooed ladies, ancient mummies, and walls of death, among many others.  Strikingly True also includes a dramatic 8-page gatefold pullout that celebrates the sideshow performers who appeared at Ripley’s first ever Odditorium—at the 1933 Chicago World’s Fair.  With something strange to entertain and shock every member of the family, Strikingly True is sure to continue to massive success of the expanding Ripley’s book brand.”

If your family loves strange stories, odd facts, and all kinds of other craziness then you have to check out Ripley’s Believe it or Not!  Strikingly True…it would make a great holiday gift for the book lover on your list!  Can’t wait for the book?  Make sure you check out Ripley’s new apps, including iSword where you can swallow a virtual sword!
