You know the deal. There’s language arts, math, science, and history. You have the color-coded folders and notebooks; you know the material. The classic subjects. But why isn’t there a Stuff That Knocks Your Socks Off class, or Random Facts to Rock Your World?

Well, luckily, with Stuff Kids Should Know, an incomplete compendium of only the most interesting topics, you will find fascinating stories and facts that will melt your mind! From demolition derbies to Mr. Potato Head to the history of facial hair, this book is full of funny, surprising information that sparks curiosity and reveals the magic of knowledge.


Stuff Kids Should Know: The Mind-Blowing Histories of (Almost) Everything is a fascinating book that digs in a little deeper into the whys and hows. A few topics touched upon are Dog Smells, Aging and Mr. Potato Head, just to name a few.

There are 14 different topics that is touched upon in this book and each one will blow your mind. I know it sure did for me! I can’t believe I had to be in my 40s to know the original origins of Mr. Potato Head. There is a first for everything!

*Please note that the book is regular size and not as big as seen in this photo. 😉

For this #MelAndNikkiReview, we give this book 5 rocks out of 5! Clever, full of information, intriguing and a dash of wit. It truly was a fun and interesting read for us. The footnotes on each page was a great reference point to review. The certificates on the back is a nice touch that make you feel like you graduated. 😉

This book is great for anyone eight years and up. If you would like to purchase a copy of it, click here.
