Reading Fact

Dorothy Straight wrote her book How the World Began when she was 4 years and 3 months old, making her the youngest person in the world to write a published book.


Dorothy wrote the book all in one evening in response to her mother’s question of “Who made the world?”, and her parents loved it so much that they sent it to Pantheon Books. It was published 2 years later. 


History Fact

Russia ran out of vodka celebrating the end of World War II.

 

If you ask somebody to name things that are quintessentially Russian, they’ll probably say winter, communism and, of course, vodka.


It should come as no surprise that, after being punched almost all the way to Moscow by the Nazis then fighting their way back to Berlin, the Russians were pretty elated when they heard the news of the Third Reich’s fall.


Jubilation and street parties engulfed the Soviet Union, lasting for days and days – even non-drinkers saw this as cause enough to join in with the revelry.


That is until all of the nation’s vodka reserves ran out. A mere 22 hours after the partying started.


Now started the nationwide hangover…
