The Story of Explorers and Exploration by Penny Clarke


The Story of Explorers and Exploration by Penny Clarke

Stunningly illustrated throughout, with clear text, maps and globes showing routes and cut away drawings revealing what's going on inside, these titles provide an invaluable insight into the expeditions that shaped the world. Descriptions of the most famous expeditions set in the historical background of their time, provide a perfect introduction to areas of history that can often be daunting for young readers. A complete glossary and index make this title an ideal educational text for both home and school. It fits into Key Stage 2 History and is an ideal text for shared and guided reading for Key Stage 2 pupils within the framework of the National Literacy Strategy. It also helps to achieve the goals of the Scottish Standard Curriculum 5-14.

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.
