Lots of amazing facts and photographs,information with the "WOW" factor on every page and so much to read it's going to be a gift worthy of many hours of interest well beyond Christmas.
I'd recommend this highly to anyone with youngsters...indeed all ages,really!...with inquisitive minds or simply seeking entertaining reading that also adds knowledge to the fun aspect.
A perfect gift at any time but with Christmas not too far away this book can solve that "what-to-give" headache for almost anyone and at a super price too.
The latest Guinness World Records 2019 has amazing never seen before photographs and a vast amount of interesting facts.
Guinness World Records 2019 has done a good job creating a vast record of achievements and have dedicated a special feature for the respectable "Maker movement" (the inventors, dreamers, crafters and creators of our world).
This book even has a "Do Try This At Home section" Where you can challenge yourself and your family with five fun record-breaking maker-inspired records.

Every section is separated by a 'Making History' section featuring all sorts of interesting ideas, like the Saturn V, the Disney Castle or the Eiffel tower.
The novel new records of the year as well as a selection of the old faithful's all add up to this book being a great reference for you or your kids and particularly an engaging 'coffee table' book for the next twelve months. I defy you to get bored with this- it is a great diversion, especially for the holiday season.
