Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4–7—Kids love lists, trivia, photos, and the "latest and greatest" anything. With a lenticular cover and more than 300 pages of full-color pictures, this book will be well used and well worn by curiosity seekers as well as those looking for tidbits of trivia to impress their friends. It's not a tough sell as it packs in plenty of pop-culture factoids (like Adele's record-setting music and Disney's successful films) and a healthy dose of 21st-century technology (plenty of trivia here about texting, apps, and social media sites as well as the hottest video/computer games). The book opens with records concerning social media and the Internet, followed by biggest money makers and pop-culture topics. State records, nature, sports, and U.S. records round out the title, providing both interesting and useful information. Obviously records go out of date even before the book can be released (this one still includes Lance Armstrong's seven revoked Tour de France titles). Still, children will eat this book up; be sure to buy enough copies for your anticipated audience.—Sharon Verbeten, Brown County Library, Green Bay, WI

A lot of contents are redundant from previous years. Even my 4th grader noticed. Good book to have in a car for occasional road trips.
