Library Media Connection

"This exciting series of great explorer biographies is sure to be a valuable resource for the social studies curriculum, as well as provide great reading of general interest for grades school students. Each simple, yet fascinating text begins by introducing the explorer through details of his most famous and exciting event, and then proceeds in succeeding chapters to cover the life of each explorer from birth to adulthood; adventures and explorations; battles and obstacles; and the impact of those discoveries on history and life today. The variety of illustrations with captions complement and emphasize facts presented in the text. These include a variety of drawings, photos, copies of famous artwork, and maps, which outline the paths of expeditions, locations of discoveries, and conquests. Fact boxes appear on nearly every two-page spread. At the conclusion of the text, a page of “Fast Facts” helps to summarize events; a timeline places the explorers’ discoveries in historical context with other explorers; and a glossary reinforces new words introduced in the text. There is a reading list and Internet site list. The FactHound.com Web site, which is very simple and user friendly, allows readers to further explore safe on-line information related to the text. This series is sure to create interest in early discoverers and explorers. Recommended." - Library Media Connection
