Book
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.

Praise for Explorers: Oceans and Seas

NSTA Recommends
There are many books about the ocean for young children, but this one offers a twist. It can be read like an internet scavenger hunt in book form. That makes it more interactive, and the format has the potential to attract reluctant readers. . . . This book gives young students an introduction to the marine environment, and including the theme of conservation gives it added value.
 
Library Media Connection
Explorers is a unique references series. Along with many facts, illustrations, and information-filled pages, the reader will find more information in the borders and sidebars. . . . students will want to read it over and over.
