Description

Explorers are designed to appeal to readers aged 6-8: those who are just starting to read alone and more confident readers who are beginning to exercise wider reading and cross-referencing skills. Lively, dramatic artwork scenes draw children into a subject, and each scene is followed by a photographic information spread that gives a wealth of extra detail. As a fun extra element, the reader can follow themed links to access information on related topics. In Planet Earth, young readers take a trip around the globe and examine the core subject of the Earth. Each spread focuses on a key aspect of earth science, from Earth's relationship to the Sun and Moon, to volcanoes, mountains, the seas, rainforests, the many ways we use the land and how maps work.show more
