Reference encyclopedia, puzzle book, interesting read, homework helper -- the SCHOLASTIC BOOK OF LISTS 2 is all of this and more! This is one title that you'll want either in your classroom or home library, or just to have on hand for some entertaining reading.
Broken down into ten main categories -- History, Social Studies, World and Weather, Science, Words, Pop Culture, Animals, Food, Grab Bag, and Sports -- this book has a list for just about everything. Whether it's something you might really need to know (like the Presidential runner-ups all the way back to 1788) or something you're just interested in (like the 17 perfect games pitched in baseball through 2005), there's enough information here to keep you busy for weeks!
There are also fun games and puzzles scattered throughout the book, which add an interesting hands-on experience to the lists. This is definitely a book you want to have around, and my son even used a number of the lists as a basis for his required journal entries for school. This book is a keeper!
