Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kristi Bernard
People all over the world are coming up with ideas and ways to beat existing world records or are coming up with their own new first time achievements. Scholastic has put together a wonderful page turner filled with records in categories like science and technology, money, pop culture, nature, sports and more. Short bursts of fact based information are found on each page so that readers can be brought up to speed on what world records exist. If readers are up to speed with the latest video games then they will be interested in knowing that Super Mario is the best-selling video game franchise with over 290 million copies sold. Sports enthusiasts will want to know that Manchester United is the most valuable soccer team and the Los Angeles Dodgers was the most expensive sports team purchase costing Guggenheim Partners $2 billion. The top-grossing animated movies was Toy Story 3, the world’s largest coral reef is the Great Barrier Reef, and the most common insect is the beetle. There is a section for records accomplished in the United States alone. For example, Minnesota has the largest indoor amusement park and Idaho harvests the most farm-raised trout. Anything and everything you’d want to know can be found in colorful pictures and graphs. Each page has a large color photo, a graph indicating the points of each participating country and a paragraph describing the record. Its simplicity makes it easy to navigate and find exactly what you are looking for. Kids around the world participated in the Scholastic Summer Challenge and read for 176,438,473 minutes. Parents and teachers can challenge kids to read for the world record. To learn how is shown in the back of the book. There are more than 300 records found on these pages. Readers of all ages will be astonished at what they will find. Reviewer: Kristi Bernard AGERANGE: Ages 9 up.

    Well, my daughter can't read this with her nook.  I guess it's my fault for not clicking the question mark to the right of, "Available on NOOK devices and apps."  That little question mark next to it pulls up the list of compatible Nooks.

    Buyer beware, because "Available on NOOK devices and apps" doesn't mean ALL Nook devices and apps.  Misleading.
