This book of records is just like all of the other Guiness books. With this book you can find out the shortest, tallest, fastest, slowest, easiest and hardest of anything in the world. This book is great for people that like straight facts because thats what it is. This book is good for any age although it is not one of my favorite books because of course it has no characters, no plots and no theme. The different sections of the book are dived up between different topics and themes so it is orga ...more

This may not seem like a book you would read page to page but i truley am. I have seem many records from most body piersings in on visit to Most points scored in a football game. I would predict that the next chapter will be on sports, and thats because i saw it when i was turning to my pag ewhich is page 34. I really enjoy learning some interesting and nasty things people have accomplished.

"Guinness World of Records 2006" is a book more designed for entertainment than knowledge in an elementary classroom. This book offers students entertainment and an opportunity to seek a different kind of knowledge. I would have this book in my classroom just for entertainment purposes. Recommended for upper elementary (3-5).

This is one of my favorite books to have in a classroom. Children will learn to read just so they can figure out the cool things that the people in the book are doing. Everyone gets interested and involved in this book. It has the longest worm (which is enormous). I had my students measure out the actual length of the worm in the classroom and everyone was interested in it for several weeks.

Kids LOVE this stuff ... unfortunately the books are very heavy, and make loud thuds when they hit the floor after the young one rolls over in bed [fell asleep reading]. Hey, ANYthing that gets kids reading is AOK.
