Webster, Christy Guinness World Records: Biggest and Smallest, 175 pgs. Harper, 2016. $12.99 Content: Language: G; Mature Content: G; Violence: G.
In seven sections world records are shown through pictures and small paragraphs. The sections include: animals, games, food, art, vehicles, curiosities and human records. Sometimes it tells not just of the current world record, but the record throughout time. It also sometimes divides records between men and women.
The pictures are colorful and attractive. My boys think world record books are awesome, even though they gross me out a bit. This is a fun, quirky book that will keep readers entertained.
