    1. How does National Geographic put out a book about debunking myths without references? They claim things are false on no evidence that I have seen claimed to be true by trusted sources (including National Geographic itself!) And some of the "myths" busted, like black cats bringing bad luck, are in fact superstitions. Somebody at national Geographic has to know the difference.


    2. Just about everyone has heard, told, or believed an urban legend or myth about the origin of French fries or the fact that alligators live in the sewers of New York. There are plenty of myths or untruths swirling around bats, spiders, and even the dentures of George Washington. Just as it is not true that the nation's first president wore dentures made from wood, none of the myths described in this book, often held as truths, have any credibility to them. Young readers will enjoy thumbing throug [...]


    3. I really liked this book a lot. It had pictures on every page showing a different myth and then busting it on the next page by showing the truth. It also tells you where the myth came from. The pictures are really bright and some are real pictures and others are cartoons. I read the whole book in one night because it was really cool. I would recommend this to my friends because they would learn a lot about animals, history and the human body. There is a second book in this series that I want to [...]


    4. What a fun read! This collection of popular myths are introduced in bold text, the origin is explained, the myth is debunked in a brief paragraph and fun facts are included in colored sidebars. Illustrations consist of photographs and collage artwork.This is a great in-between read because it's, fast, informative, interesting, and portable like a magazine.Recommended for grades 3-5.


    5. This book is fabulous for kids that are interested in anything and everything! This book has so much information that it will keep kids engaged for hours. There are tons of fun facts that you wouldn't normally hear about otherwise. I would use this book in a science or history class. I would pick one myth to disprove and study about that subject.


    6. Myth Busted explores and explains over 60 different myths, superstitions, and misconceptions such as a camel's hump contains water, water drains counterclockwise in the Southern Hemisphere, and one dog year equals seven human years. Classroom uses:-entertainment/class libraryLexile : 1030L DRA Level: 50 Guided Reading: V


    7. This book told me some stuff that I thought was true that really wasn't. My favorite myth that was busted was the one that said that Mt. Everest was the tallest mountain in the world when really, Mauna Kea of Hawaii is the tallest Mt. Mt. Everest only reaches the highest heights and is only the tallest mt about sea level since Mauna Kea is under the sea and you can only see the tip off it.


    8. This is a great book!!! It busts myths such as porcupines throwing their quills, your heart stopping when you sneeze, and gold fish having a 3 second memory. And most importantly, it busts about 8 myths dealing spiders. (Like, it is not true that the average person swallows up to four spiders while asleep in their life timeank goodness!!) Great pictures through out entire book.


    9. This is an entertaining book. The book is not something that a teacher can really plan lessons around, but it may be fun to have in the classroom. It is something that kids may enjoy and keep them engaged. It is a good book shelf book that students can look at during free time, because it has many fun facts.


    10. Extremely interesting and amazing what I learned. My daughter needed explaining the myths in some cases: 1) didn't understand if the book was saying something true/false, 2) didn't know the myth to begin with. Good series though.


    11. this book is great i learned so much about the myths i knew i thought that when you sneeze you heart stops that is not true it slows down it does not stop and if you drop a penny from the tower it does not kill you a pencil or pen does but not a penny


    12. I looooooooove this book! People should know that it took the author a ton of hard work to put together this book! If you don't believe me why don't you try writing a non-fiction book and getting every single fact right!



    13. Myths Busted is sure to fly off the shelves in the same manner as the beyond popular National Geographic series - Weird But True.




    14. Cute little book about miscellaneous facts, debunking of assumptions, myths? Meh. Many entries left me wanting more information.



    15. Amusing facts and superstitions I think kids will enjoy. I was left wondering though where the rebuttal information came from - a bibliography would be helpful.


    16. Could have had more information and they should have made sure that the myths were actually myths and not superstitions as some of them were.


    17. I continue to be impressed with NatGeo's kids' books. This is a good choice for trivia lovers or young "Mythbusters" fans.
