Spectacular Skyscrapers

Meish Goldish (author)

Publisher: Bearport Publishing ISBN: 9781617723421

Some buildings are so tall it's hard to grasp just how far they rise into the air. In this book, kids will discover the most spectacular skyscrapers in the world and come to understand their incredible features through size comparisons and dazzling photos. For example, readers will learn about the tallest building in China, the Shanghai World Financial Center. It's 1,614 feet (492 m) tall--a big number that's easier to understand if you know it's equivalent to a hundred giraffes stacked on top of one another! And then there's the Taipei 101, which at 1,670 feet (509 m) is the tallest office building in the world. If the building were laid flat on the ground, it would stretch across five-and-a- half football fields placed end to end. Now that's a big building! Packed with large, full-color photos and fascinating comparisons, Spectacular Skyscrapers will help readers understand the larger-than-life features of these buildings in terms they can understand. Stat boxes on each spread provide a quick rundown of the key features of each building.
