I just love reading about world records and finding out all the cool stuff people can do all around the world. In Guinness World Records: Science Stuff, you can read about amazing world records, and learn how to do some pretty fun science experiments too.
One of my favourite sections is the “Make & Break” pages where you’ll get 10 experiments you can try at home. You can try the “Highest Egg Drop” or “Mentos & Soda Car”.
This book really has everything! I enjoyed reading about what makes Usain Bolt, the fastest man in the world, well, fast! I also read about the Sydney funnel-web, the world’s most venomous spider, and how to survive its dangerous bite.
You’ll learn so much by reading this book. The book just came out this month so you can look for it at your local bookstore or library.

I just read a great book called Mr. Owliver’s Magic at the Museum by Carolyn Bracken.
This book is all about an owl who works as a night watchman at the Animaltown Art Museum. Mr. Owliver never feels lonely in the museum at night because of all the amazing paintings around him. He even talks to them! Then one night, Mr. Owliver discovers that the paintings might actually be listening!
What happens? You’ll have to check this book out at your local library or book store to find out!

Letters to a Prisoner by Jacques Goldstyn is a wordless story about the power of hope and the written word. chickaDEE reader Nyal just read this book and would like to share what he thought about it. Take it away, Nyal!
“This book has no words which is cool, because I’ve never read a book without words before. I didn’t like that there were some mean people in the book. I like how the drawings are like cartoons. My favourite picture is the one with the dad walking with his daughter—they look so happy. Kids would like this book because they’d learn not to be mean to other people.”
Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us, Nyal. We agree that this book has a very important message for everyone.
