Nothing grips the imagination like speed, and Kingfisher Readers L5: Record Breakers-The Fastest by Brenda Stones is packed with the fastest animals, men, and machines on the planet. It starts with the early days in mans quest for speedy travel, and then looks at “the fastest” in many different kinds of areas, from animals, to cars, trains, sports, bikes, and even the fastest brains and fingers. (Did you know the record for the fastest solution to a Rubiks Cube was 5.66 seconds?) Along the way, newly emergent readers will absorb many amazing facts from multiple levels of text, and a deep glossary and index helps them grow their research skills. One of the speediest things about this entertaining title will be how fast kids will finish the book!
