Scholastic Discover More

These are reading-level geared nonfiction books packed with "Wow!" Information and facts brim from edge to edge in captivating, vibrant, full-color photos, illustrations, cross-section graphics. These books investigate questions and highlight a wide variety of information, emphasizing key, but also unique, points. For example, students learn potential heroes and villains in the Titanic diaster, about the first African American Artic Explorer (Explorers), and how to play Senet (Ancient Egypt). Engaging images, to-the-point text and extra features will make these appealing books. Text is concise, usually several short paragraphs and lots of bullet-point facts and figures on each two-page spread. Plenty of period photographs (including cutaways) provide the "you are there" feel. Occasional cutaways show the layout of such items as a Sherman tank, B-24 bomber, and U-boat (World War II). Equally engaging are the colorful charts, maps, graphics, diagrams, and timelines. This series encourages readers to think for themselves in examining causes and consequences and includes special problems of interest (Can you decipher hieroglyphics to read part of the Book of the Dead?). Each book includes access to a download of 60 + pages from the Scholastic web site via a code provided in each book. Included are videos, first hand accounts, encyclopedia entries, definitions, and references to other books and websites of related interest. I like the inclusion of a modern history topic in this series: Hurricane Katrina, which examines aftereffects, scientific studies, eyewitness accounts, and potential prevention of further such disasters. 8" x 10. 1/4", approx. 80 pp, reinforced sc. - Ruth
