Many books fall down - level 3
Now, that’s what you call an impressive domino chain! Yeah, a Belgian book association has broken the world record for the longest book domino chain ever!
The record-breaking event was designed to celebrate books and promote reading.
A total of 4,845 books followed a pathway through the Antwerp book fair, spelling the Dutch words for “book,” “fair” and “read.”
It took forty volunteers two hours to set up the lines of books.
At the end of the 614-metre-long journey, which took only six minutes to complete, the books set off eight fireworks. Oh, we do love a celebration!
Difficult words: association (organisation), pathway (way that serves as a path), fair (event at which businesses show and sell their products), volunteer (person who does a job for free).
