Book
'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.
 
Readers can dive into one of the most biologically diverse environments in the world, and explore the plants, animals, and people of the rainforest through a series of story scenes designed to highlight key topics in rainforest education. From the towering trees, to life in the canopy, dwelling in the dark on the forest floor, and the role the river plays in the rainforest environment.
