The Jeff Probst Challenge Yourself books were so much fun to read. Marty and I have always enjoyed learning new things. As a matter of fact, Marty knows more of what I call “information no one else knows” than anyone else I have ever met. He’s always sharing interesting facts like “The Nile River stretches more than 4,258 miles.” Who would have known? My son has always loved reading books that are full of facts and trivia as well. He loved learning about animals and interesting places in the world. If you have someone in your home like that, you’ll want to keep reading and learn about a young adult book series that I was sent for review.
