Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Who does not like to drop a little tidbit in a conversation now and then? Bet you don't know the tallest building in the world, the largest rock, team that has won the most World Series, or the country that has the highest per capita income in the world. The answers to these and 300 more amazing questions and related records are illustrated and explained in full color in this handy book of world records. The information in divided into major sections—Popular Culture, Science and Technology, Sports, Nature, U.S. Records, Human Made Records and Money and Business. Each of these is further subdivided and color coded tabs make finding the material easy. There is even an index to facilitate look-ups. It is a bit ironic that with the recent election in California the opening page of the popular culture section features Arnold Schwarzenegger and later in that section, kids will learn that he is the highest paid actor. This book is fun and offers an opportunity to learn about this country, the world and facts that amuse and educate. It is a great gift for a trip since it will fit easily in a backpack. 2003, Scholastic, Ages 8 up.
