"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. "Weather" is an adventure through the world around us, revealing the different kinds of weather and weather patterns that affect what we do every day.
