How does a fact make it into a NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC KIDS Weird But True book? First, it has to be weird. Our team of editors and writers scour the news, the latest discoveries, Internet gems, urban legends, wacky myths, and tantalizing tidbits to find a fact that's really weird. It also has to be true. So our researchers check every single word to make sure the fact is 100 percent accurate. It has to look cool. Our photo editors and designers find the perfect weird picture or the most dazzling weird design to make each fact jump out at you. Then we put them all together in an amazing-looking book that's so much fun kids can't put it down.
