Summary

Explorers are designed to appeal to readers ages 6-8: those who are just starting to read alone and more confident readers who are beginning to exercise wider reading and cross-referencing skills. Lively, dramatic artwork scenes draw children into a subject, and each scene is followed by a photographic information spread that gives a wealth of extra detail. As a fun extra element, the reader can follow themed links to access information on related topics.

Anyone who has ever looked at an insect with a magnifying glass knows that the world of these tiny creatures is fascinating. In Explorers: Insects and Creepy-Crawlies - by Jinnny Johnson, illustrated by Peter Bull - young readers get an up-close view of life in a variety of insect habitats. Each spread focuses on a key topic, from insect homes, to a butterfly's life cycle, to flying insects and life in a beehive, to amazing hunting minibeasts including spiders and scorpions.
