This book fits my " a non-fiction book " blog on my bingo board. This book is an interesting book about the world records which have been set in the year of 2010. I learnt about the 2010 records which were newly set or broken by other people. It made me wanna try a break a record myself, such an inspiring book. I would recommend to anyone who can read.

Each year, I eagerly await the arrival of the updated "Guinness World Records." Indeed, it seems to get a bit wilder each year, as new (and sometimes wacky) records are reported. The rules as to what qualifies as a record are laid out (as they are each year). The fun begins even just by randomly leafing through pages (my favorite way of perusing these volumes).

The first page begins with "Firsts," such as the first cloned animal (Remember her name? Dolly!); the first in-flight movie (in 1925); t

The Guinness book of world records 2010 starts out with the very best things of 2009. Examples of it are the cloned sheep by DR. Ian Wilmut made. It was able to live to a normal lifespan as a normal sheep. It was also able to have kids. Also, Russia released that they put a dog in a spaceship and put it in space. It ended up dying of overheating. Then it goes on to talk about human achievements. The tallest man in the world i

I just read the book Guiness World Records 2010 by Franklin Gothic.It is nonfiction.It is also 287 pages long. I rated it four stars. The main reason I rated this book four stars because it had really cool records in it. I also liked the sports records. It talked about rugby a lot. The only thing that wasn't that amazing was the astronomy section. It didn't really have anything that was cool in that section. Those are the main facts about the Guiness World Records book 2010.

The order of the bo

Guinness World Records 2010 is a book you can have fun with. No matter who reads it, dads, grandma, uncle, sister, it will be very interesting and entertaining It is full of weird, amazing, and bizarre records. All most all of the records in the book has at least one picture of it which contributed to the entertaining feeling when I read it.

What I like about this book is that it compares many records with others to give us a better idea of what it is like. An example: Cristiano Ronaldo holds the

These are some of my favourite books ! I like them because they are exciting for students of almost any age. I also love that the records are from around the world. I think they are a good book to get interest in reading for those who are often reluctant to read. I like the wide variety in topics from 'Sports' to 'Video Games' and other wacky topics. It seems to get a bit wilder each year, as new (and sometimes creepy) records are reported. The fun begins even just by randomly looking through pa ...more

These books are exciting for students of almost any age. I love that the records are from around the world, and that can spark interest in other cultures, and also expresses our unity with people from far away, despite our differences. These books are very popular with the gifted third graders, mostly the boys, and I think they are a good resource to spark interest in reading for those who are often reluctant.

This book is very informational and we get to read about the world's broken records and we can also find out which record was broken on our birthday and there are many chapters to this book and there are records of many things from the shortest man living to the largest burger commercially available.

After reading Guinness World Record 2009 I was shocked of the improved records and layout of the new Guinness World Record 2010. When I read this book I was think of visualizing because I can think of it very easily.
