This book is all about different records that have been broken. It has different sections which are:Planet Earth, People Power, Sporting Prowess, Feats of Engineering, Living World and Out of this World. I like that this is a hardback book and the pictures are very good and so are the diagrams. My favourite pages are about the Arctic records like who was the first surface traveller to reach the North Pole. I also really liked the I’m a Survivor pages, which have interesting facts such as how long you can last without air and information about people like the Longest Time in the Desert.

The children have spent hours happily pouring over this wonderful find. They each prefer different sections; my son loves animals so he loved the living world section and my daughter loved the people power section as she's a bit of an adventurer. There are six sections in total. Each page has lovely big illustrations or images. The information is presented in bite size chunks so does not overwhelm the children and they quite happily skip to their favourite parts. Full of fantastic facts, It's a great book that has already come in handy with homework from school.

This is a stunning, riveting book. The moment I got this book, I couldn’t keep it down, except when I went to school! The records mesmerised me. The book covers myriad records including records in nature, fears of engineering and weather, which is my favourite. 
This is a book to read, collect and treasure.

This book is amazing. Each page is jam packed with facts and figures as well as brilliant photos and illustrations. The book is split into six main sections. These are: Planet Earth, People power, Sporting prowess, Feats of engineering, Living World and Out of this world. You can learn so much from this book. There are pages on the world's tallest buildings, information about dinosaurs, details of world record holding athletes and many other interesting subsections. The whole family has enjoyed reading this book and finding out new and interesting things. We especially liked the 'fast facts' section which can be found on many of the double page spreads. There is hours of fun to be had finding out as much as you can.

5 stars
This is a fantastic book, really good quality with thick glossy pages. Each page is full of pictures and bite size pieces of text which meant my daughter didn't get bored, i find this particularly important in a factual book as a child an easily loose interest. Its a great book to just pick up and read for a few minutes. We loved the fact there was a page on record breaking dinosaurs as we are a dinosaur loving household. It has a real educational value to children as its not just man made records, but animal, plants etc. I feel this is the type of book every child should have in their collection.

5 stars
A fantastic book (especially for my fact loving family) the book is split into different sections and is filled with trivia and records. The pictures are fantastic and the book is easy to read and not too overcrowded like some fact books can be. Rorys favourite section was Out Of This World and Addies was People Power

I really enjoyed reading this book and learning new facts about lots of things like facts about the planet earth, lots of things about people such as famous kings and queens, adventurers and writers. I liked this hardback book with clear illustrations and diagrams. The illustrations are very simple and labelled clearly which really helps to explain facts. I liked how the book has different categories, my favourite section was 'out of this world' because it tells us about records in space.

My book arrived a bit late and the publishers were really kind and sent me another book about scientists.
