Book Review - Scholastic Book of World Records 2012

About the Book
A LOT can change in a year, and the bestselling SCHOLASTIC BOOK OF WORLD RECORDS has been updated to include all the most recent events with a fresh new cover and interior design!

Whether kids want to know what the world's fastest shark is, which country eats the most fast food, who has the most career hits in the MLB, or which state has the largest teddy bear, the SCHOLASTIC BOOK OF WORLD RECORDS 2012 has all of the answers and much, much more! Over the past ten years, kids, parents, and teachers have come to love this kid-friendly book.

Each of the 300 records on pop culture, sports, science, and more has its own page that includes a full-color photograph and a detailed description of the record.

About the Author
Jenifer Corr Morse is an award winning author who has written many books for children and young adults, including Superstar Stats and all of the Scholastic Books of World Records.

My Take on the Book
I always loved this series, even when I was a child myself. What I loved was seeing all of the world records and wondering in my own mind if I could ever break a world record myself? One of the things that I love about this new edition are the wonderful pictures that accompany the records themselves. It allows for young to old readers to enjoy themselves and the book as they move along and it draws them into the records themselves! I have already shared the book with my daughters and I love seeing their own eyes grow in wonder at some of these records just like I know mine did when I was growing up!
