This informative post will be posted on Saturday along with my usual writing.  We can all appreciate some of the lesser known facts from around the world.

Nine months after reading a 1954 LIFE magazine report on illiteracy that concluded that children were not learning to read because their books were boring, Dr. Seuss created his classic, THE CAT IN THE HAT, using only words culled from an average first-grader’s vocabulary list.

The underground interterminal train that has been operating at the George  Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston since 1981 replicates the exact mechanical design of Disney World’s Tomorrowland PeopleMover.  It is the only transportation system outside of a Disney theme park that was built by the Walt Disney Company.

These facts have been discovered in I NEVER KNEW THAT by David Hoffman (2009).
