Sherlock Bones is used in this series to guide readers through interactive explorations. For example, in Saving Water readers learn how we use water, why we need it, how it helps humankind, and what the future holds. Each title has questions posed by Sherlock Bones throughout, with answers at the end. "Detective Work" insets suggest actions and investigations readers can apply to learn more or see how a process really works. Drawings and photographs illustrate each book.
