Explorers are designed to stimulate readers in the early elementary grades (ages 7-10), 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. In Oceans and Seas, readers travel from the seashore to the deepest chasm, and from the warm waters of the tropics to the frigid Arctic. Along the way, they examine coral reefs, shipwrecks, sharks, whales, seals, and much more. The book’s innovative structure allows young readers to chart their own course for scientific exploration.
