Book Review - 101 Animal Records

About the Book
From the authors of the wildly successful 101 ANIMAL SECRETS and 101 FREAKY ANIMALS comes this compendium of the animal kingdom's most amazing records!

Did you know that the blue whale, the world's largest animal, is as big as three school buses and weighs as much as twenty-seven elephants? Or that a sea wasp is so poisonous, its venom can kill up to sixty human adults? Can you believe that the silk moth caterpillar's appetite is so enormous that it can eat more that than 1,000 times its weight each day?

Filled with fascinating facts and tons of detailed photographs, 101 Animal Records is sure to be an instant favorite for kids, parents, and teachers alike!

About the Authors

My Take on the Book
This was a very cool book with so much information within it. I was very surprised (pleasantly so) at how much I as well as my girls learned in this book. I never knew that anyone kept track of all of the categories that are in this book (though I could have guessed some of them). You too will be truly educated in this book as there are so many things that you would not have even guessed as you read this! Well written and definitely interesting and intriguing, it will keep your family talking for quite some time.
