Guinness World Records by Cari Meister - ADVISABLE

Meister, Cari  Guinness World Records: Daring Dogs  Harper, 2016.  $3.99  Content: G.  

In this condensed version of World Records, there are about 30 examples of different record breaking dog feats.  Dogs have world records for their overall size, ear length or weight.  They also have records for doing different kinds of tricks, such as balancing biscuits on their head or riding a scooter.  

This book uses photographs to show the animals who have won the record.  There are about 3 sentences of text per page, and there are some dog names that are hard to pronounce.  The pictures will grab the attention of readers, but the text is a bit above an early reader and size or length is a bit abstract for younger readers.  That said this is a fun read and it sparks questions.  

EL (K-3) – ADVISABLE.  Reviewer, C. Peterson.
