Summer Giveaway Day 2: 100 THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE YOU GROW UP

Who knew I missed so much growing up? If I’d only had this handy guide along for the6301558 ride, life from then on would have been so much easier. But it’s never too late!

Spread out on the 256 colorful pages are hints, tips, and tricks in an easy to hold book (a square six and half on each side). My favorites were HOW TO PACK A SUITCASE LIKE A PRO, HOW TO BE AN ADVENTUROUS EATER, and HOW TO LET YOUR IMAGINATION RUN WILD.

The intended audience would probably gravitate toward HOW TO RESOLVE CONFLICT PEACEFULLY, HOW TO HAVE A FRIEND FOR LIFE, or HOW TO BE BRAVE.

You’ll have to get the book to discover the other 94 how to’s. It will be the best gift a tween could ever get. Fantastic summertime reading!


100 Things to Know Before You Grow Up (ages 9-12, $9.99) – Jam-packed with tips, tricks and skills that every kids should master before turning 18, this is the ultimate guide to expanding ones horizons and becoming a fun-loving, well-rounded and confident young person. A perfect graduation gift or addition to a camp care package, kids will love the expert advice from Nat Geo Explorers, adventurers and masters of their craft from around the world.


Make a comment if you would like to be in a drawing for your own copy of 100 THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE YOU GROW UP and the three other titles I’m reviewing this week.  All four books to one winner! The drawing will take place Sunday, June 26th at Noon EDT. Good luck. Comment each day and I’ll double your entries!

Warning: This is not your grandmother’s version of National Geographic. Middle grade readers will find them irresistible.




See you tomorrow!

  1. Interesting. I had no idea there were 100 things I must do before I grow up. Good thing I’m still not grown all the way up. Would love to receive any of the books in the giveaway, but 100 Things is most interesting (though I love the angry birds).

    That’s an excellent collection. I’ve seen the Nat Geo Almanac already and it’s great just by itself. Thanks for the chance to win the whole bundle.

  3. I will really have to get this one. You make it sound very enticing. Thanks for the review, but let someone else win please. I am swimming in books right now.

  8. This is a great idea for a book for tweens. I have a 10-year-old great granddaughter who loves to read books with facts.
