Description

'Explorers' are designed to stimulate readers in the early elementary grades (ages 6 8), who are beginning to exercise wider reading, research and cross-referencing skills. They can be read from page to page, or as a fun extra element the reader can follow special page links' to access information on related topics. Six fabulous artwork scenes are each followed up with photographic information spreads, which provide extra detail and background.Young readers take a trip around the globe and examine the core subject of the Earth through a series of accessible story spreads. Each spread focuses on a key aspect of Earth Science by placing it in the context of a beautifully-illustrated scene-from Earth's relationship to the Sun and Moon, to volcanoes, mountains, the seas, the rainforest, and the many ways we use the land. After delving into the story, readers can turn the page and explore photographic details and scientific explanations that expand on the scientific ideas."show more
