Summer is officially here and with the heat comes several cool books that are perfect additions to every mom's boredom-proof summer survival kit - my 13 year-old agrees! These titles are ideal for road trips, camp care packages and those loooong late summer days when kids are bored and parents are figuring out how to survive until September:). Here's a bit more about each of these books:

Real or Fake? by Emily Krieger (ages 8-12) - NEW SERIES ALERT! - Can you mail an unpackaged coconut via the United States Postal Service? Are tiger cubs born furless and without stripes? Did China build a secret city for 1,000 people on the sea floor? Is there really a type of bird with tiny, useless wings, hairlike feathers and nostrils at the END of its beak or is it just a hoax? Real or Fake tests your detective skills to determine which stories are real and which, in fact, are fake (oh, and yes, you CAN mail a coconut, China did NOT build an underwater city and that bird is not a myth! It is a kiwi!). Also included are history's greatest hoaxes, secrets behind a good fake, internet urban legends, and crazy headlines.

Mastermind by Stephanie Warren Drimmer (ages 8-12) - NEW SERIES ALERT! - In this interactive book kids learn about what type of thinker they are and are given the chance to exercise different parts of their brains with games, tests and puzzles. The cheeky narrator and self-proclaimed "Mastermind" Ima Genius and her talking dog, Atom, guide the reader through short and snappy explanations of the science behind why the brain does what it does and how it affects the senses, spatial reasoning, language, memory and problem solving. As kids work their way through the book completing experiments, brain teasers, mazes, quizzes and games, their efforts (and smarts!) are rewarded with a Certificate of Mental Achievement declaring them as a Certified Mastermind. Rich in content, humor, graphics and fascinating science, Mastermind is this summer's ultimate boredom buster.
