Weird History: A Twisted Tour of America's Bizarre Past by Randy Fairbanks, Matt Lake , 128 pages, read by Angie, on 02/15/2012

This book is full of weird snippets of history and I loved it. There is a lot of information in this book on ghosts, bizarre people and places, strange happenings, and just weird things that occurred in America’s history; things you aren’t told about in history books. All the segments are pretty brief so if you want more information on a topic you are going to have to find it elsewhere. But this book gives you a good overview on a lot of stuff. It is organized very well with nice concise chapters and very readable text. I think kids will find it fascinating. I know there are several things I want to know more about. I loved finding out that both Reagan and Carter saw UFOs, that there’s a cat haunting the U.S. Capital, and that George Washington was not our first president (he was our 9th)! I’m definitely going to have to read up on that one!
