How It’s Weird But True! Began
National Geographic Kids began creating magazines for children to explore the world in September 1975. They continued to create content to raise the curiosity of young children and create the desire to explore and learn more.
In 2004, an idea came to the former editor’s 60 year old mom to help answer the never ending questions of children. She proposed the idea of Weird But True! facts to be included in the National Geographic Kids magazine.
At first, this was simply a special feature included in the magazine. This special feature was so well received that now books, radio shows, and now a television series has been formed.
Weird but True! first began as a special feature in the national geographic kids magazine.
