We rated this book:


If you are looking for the perfect book for that kid (or adult) who is simply interested in everything, look no further. This book is chock-full of the most interesting facts, with over 300 lists that cover, well, just about everything. The lists are divided into eight chapters: Space, Nature, Dinosaur Times, Animals, The Body, Being Human, Inventions, and Game Changers.

Readers will discover amazing things: there are 35 types of snowflakes, 7 species of plants eat meat, 10 animals seem to have superpowers, 1.4 billion insects exist for each person on Earth, there are 4-6 million red blood cells in a drop of blood the size of a pinhead, a mushroom in Oregon covers an area equal to 15 soccer fields, in 2006 a four-year-old child from India ran a marathon, Louis XIX was king for only 20 minutes, and much more. It really covers all kinds of things!

The book is a feast for the eyes, filled with fun illustrations and photographs on pages of many colors. This isn’t just a bunch of lists. There are chunks of text that give more information. The writing is conversational, engaging, and well-researched. This is a real winner!
