Usborne Discovery Series
The books in this series are full of vividly colored photographs that illustrate animals from around the world, the vastness of space, and the world's fastest trains. Among the close-up photographs and illustrations are captions and paragraphs that give detailed information about each topic. The books are packed with random facts, interesting stories, and relevant statistics. The books have more than enough pictures and information to keep a child interested and learning for days, but they provides another feature to add even more compelling material. They are all Internet linked and list specific sites where children can go to learn more about the topic. Hundreds of child-friendly and educational websites are given, which provide more pictures, sounds, and information about the different topics. However, the books are great even without Internet access. 48 pgs each. ~ Rachel S.
