Series Made Simple
This series provides a visual tour of the seven land masses. Each continent gets its own book, featuring information on its climate, native animals, population, and unusual features. In Explore Africa, readers will learn about the Sahara desert, Mount Kilimanjaro, and the many animals in the Serengeti. Explore Antarctica features a close-up look at penguins, seals, and the international researchers who work at the science stations. Students who read the whole series will see repeated geography terms such as plateau and equator. A glossary and an index complete each book. VERDICT Full-page images and large text make this an appealing, informative guide to the continents.
