In the Scholastic Book of World Records 2002 by Jennifer Corr Morse readers can find out about more than 300 record-setters, such as what country consumes the most chocolate, which animal spends an average of 22 hours snoozing in a tree and what turned a teddy bear into the ""world's most valuable"" (a Steiff teddy bear dressed in Louis Vuitton clothes that went for nearly $200,000 at auction). Color photos and comparative bar graphs on every page plus a section on records held by each of the 50 states make this a real winner. (Scholastic Reference, $9.95 paper 320p ages 8-up ISBN 0-439-31398-8; Nov.)
