Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Barbara L. Talcroft
Not strictly about world records, this quiz book for middle readers (or other interested persons) is a combination of trivia, estimating problems with no facts to go on, and questions about things a kid (or anyone else) might not be expected to know. The nine categories each take up fourteen pages with questions, multiple choices, and lots of highly colored photos and drawings. The "Sports" and "Entertainment" sections have most of the world record questions: "Who holds the MLB record for most career strikeouts?" or "What Cameron Diaz movie has earned the most money?" "Statistics" asks about odds and percentages, which can be fun to guess and then see how wrong your perceptions were, while some of the "Science" and "Human Body" questions might actually be answered by budding scientists. Most reminiscent of Trivia are the "World" and "Toys" categories. Answers expand a bit on the facts, though no sources are given for any of the information. The quiz could be fun for the insatiably curious or for those who love to stump friends and family while picking up a few useful facts along the way. So, "how many eggs can a queen termite lay in one day?" ("Animals," page 139) or even more interesting: "How many slices of pizza are consumed each second in the United States?" ("Food," page 130) Take the book along to lighten a tedious trip, or keep it on hand for entertainment at home or in the classroom. Reviewer: Barbara L. Talcroft

My kid named Michael always plays this with his best friend. He always brings it to school. At first, I questioned if it is a book appropriate for a kid who is 9 years old, but I looked at it, and it is a great way to keep him entertained. I WOULD DEFINETLY RECREMEND THIS BOOK FOR KIDS AGES 7-12!
