Lift-the-Flap Biggest, Fastest, Tallest

Publisher: Usborne

Have you ever wondered which is the world’s longest bridge? What about the strongest animal? Or the tallest building?

A little like the Guinness World Records, this book is full of record-breaking facts. Readers can explore the fastest, strongest, tallest and longest things on the planet, both natural and man-made. Lots of people probably know the cheetah is the fastest land animal, but did you know the fastest thing alive is actually the peregrine falcon? It can reach speeds more than three times that of a cheetah!

A perfect book for anyone who loves facts and discovering things, while the lift-the-flap format makes it highly interactive. Readers can find the fact they want, then lift the flap for more detail. There’s lots to look at and think about and it’s accessible for less confident readers. There are also lots of opportunities to extend the discoveries, such as how the different facts compare with each other or with more familiar things – how tall is the tallest building compared to the tallest waterfall? How strong is the strongest animal compared to the strongest human?

A brilliant nonfiction title to excite young people and stimulate questions and conversation – or just fun to share with friends and family!
