Synopsis

Oceans and Seas by Steven Savage

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.

Reviews

NSTA RecommendsThere 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 ConnectionExplorers 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.

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

This company is amazing; not only is it is a great opportunity to get books and review them but everyone is so friendly and supportive!

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Angela East

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.
