World of Wonders The Most Mesmerizing Natural Phenomena on Earth by Elisabeth Roman

Records and mysteries: a voyage in images through the most incredible and mysterious stories in nature. In World of Wonders, author Elisabeth Roman presents the natural world's wonders and records in a new, original format, beginning each story with a question (like, Whose heart beats the fastest? Does the snail really have millions of teeth?) and then describes, in detail that covers a two-page spread, over ninety world records. Young readers will learn about the natural world's exploits in different categories: height, growth, age, temperature, light, danger, weight, etc. Some other examples of topics covered: How does a squirrel manage to fly? Why do giraffes have the heaviest (in weight) heart? Includes 90 photographs.
