Guinness World Records: Daring Dogs

Story by Cynthia Rylant
Illustrated by Suçie Stevenson

Sit, speak, roll over. Surf, recycle, scooter? No, we’re not wagging your tail! Dogs of all breeds and sizes are impressive. From heroic rescues to zany tricks, the awe-inspiring pooches in Daring Dogs have gone above and beyond to earn their Guinness World Records. Simple text and full-color photos will make learning about exciting topics fun for beginning readers.

Discussion Questions:

  • As you read each record, ask your child to tell you which they think is the funniest, the silliest, the nicest, the coolest, the hardest and the cutest.
  • If they could see one of those records happen in-person, which one would it be and why?
  • Ask your child what world record they think they would win? Have them try it out…(if it’s safe to try at home, of course !)

There are 26 Guinness World Records found in this book. As your child reads through all of them, make sure he understands what each one is describing. There are a few records that describe length or height which can confuse your child, so take this opportunity to take out a ruler and show them just how big something is. This way they will truly understand and appreciate why the record is such an exciting accomplishment!
