263 Fun, Fascinating and Fact-Filled Lists

Tracey Turner & Caroline Selmes

(Pan Macmillan)– hardback

Lists for Curious Kids is an addictive compendium of comparisons and information. This book contains facts that you didn’t know you wanted to know! While its geography sections compares standard fare such as biggest waterfalls, largest lakes and tallest mountains, there is more. For example, when examining the world’s largest deserts, the differences between deserts are compared. This additional information makes us linger and take in a little more.
There are a lot of weighty issues, such as the biggest land animals, alongside the biggest insects or biggest cities. There are also more random subjects such as the worst smells and the most obscure museums, alongside unusual festivals.
Lists for Curious Kids includes themes such as classics and space, empires and civilisations, culture, languages and literature. This book urges us to read, share, reread and reference it. Amongst accessible reference books created by Tracey Turner Bookwagon recommends is How Many Mice Make an Elephant? Therefore, we are pleased to introduce Lists for Curious Kids, a new and really fulfilling title by the same writer.
