Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
Read about the select 100 awesome things that are natural wonders and human creations. These most awesome things are natural or man-made items that are found on land or sea or in the air around the world. Readers may marvel at the gigantic wave on the beach or the tiny lights of the Glowworm Cave. There is brief information about the old Namib Desert in Africa and the cold Antarctic ice sheet. Compare the Great Blue Hole in the sea and the Black hole in space. Imagine if you can the size of the space shuttle or nanomachine. See the snapshots of the 24-mile, water-crossing bridge, 4,470-mile long wall, and the 2,717 feet high skyscraper. Each page covers one incredible item with a photograph and description. There are awesome level ratings and other insets with notes of interest. The table of contents lists all the spectacular wonders and creations. Reviewer: Carrie Hane Hung
