About This Set

Travel with the Great Explorers uses a modern, tabloid-magazine style of reporting gossip and humor to introduce readers to the achievements of some of history's greatest explorers. The lively style presents not just the where and why of groundbreaking expeditions, but also how explorers found their way, how they traveled, and how they lived on the journey. The books also reveal the landscapes through which travelers passed and the people they met.

Full-Text Reviews
School Library Journal (November 1, 2015)
Gr 3-6-Bright colors and copious illustrations, along with the always-popular subject, will attract readers. Inside, there is a great deal of information, though the presentation is visually busy and material is sometimes conveyed out of sequence. Some sidebars are printed in light-colored text on bright backgrounds and are difficult to read. Short, two-to-three-word column headings can be distracting. Despite these difficulties, the books do contain relevant and interesting content, both about main and related topics. John Franklin includes information about survival in the Arctic, while James Cabot considers the aboriginal Beothuk people of Newfoundland. "My Explorer Journal" sidebars provide insightful discussion prompts. Illustrations include several reproductions and daguerreotypes. Lists of suggested online and print materials are well done. VERDICT These are attractive high-interest materials for lower level readers. © Copyright 2015. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
