Britannica’s 5-Minute Really True Stories for Family Time: 30 Amazing Stories: Featuring baby dinosaurs, helpful dogs, playground science, family reunions, a world of birthdays, and so much more!

We rated this book:


This book is a fun way to expand kids’ learning without them ever realizing they are getting a little dose of education. Each story can be read aloud in about five minutes, and they are written at a level that will keep youngsters (kindergarten through second or third grade) engaged. The older end of these ages will enjoy reading these excellent stories on their own.

There are thirty stories that cover such topics as how birthdays are celebrated in a variety of cultures, what are considered to be proper table manners around the world, how did amusement parks come to be and how have they changed since the first one in the 1500s, and what kind of games have developed in different countries. Of course, there are also some wonderful stories about animals, both land and marine animals, how they are born, how they live, and how they move from place to place.

All the stories are extremely well researched and written with a real sense of fun and liveliness. Youngsters will probably wear this book out, reading the stories over and over. This is a winner.
