The full title of this book is actually Four Extraordinary Skyscrapers: And the Illuminated, Skyscraping, Build-It-Yourself Card Tower (It's Amazing), but we couldn't fit all that into the post title. Not only is this a fascinating book that teaches kids about four of the world's most impressive skyscrapers -- the Empire State Building, the Transamerica Pyramid, Petronas Towers, and the Bank of China Tower -- it also gives them a set of cards to build a two-foot-high tower of their own... which is also a working lamp!

The 64-page, pocket-size book is "a fascinating exploration of skyscraper design and construction, with interesting facts about the structures and their architects." If you know any budding young architects -- or if you're into innovative packaging design -- this book-plus definitely makes the cool shortlist.
