Explorers are designed to appeal to all readers aged 6–8: those who are just starting to read alone and more confident readers who are beginning to exercise wider reading and crossreferencing skills. Lively, dramatic artwork scenes draw children into a subject, and each scene is followed by a photographic information spread that gives a wealth of extra detail. As a fun extra element, the reader can follow themed links to access information on related topics.

Explorers: Whales and Dolphins by Anita Ganeri, illustrated by Peter Bull takes a close look at the lives of some of the most fascinating creatures living in our oceans. From learning about what whales and dolphins eat to finding out how they survive and communicate-this book is filled with fun and unique learning opportunities about two of the most mysterious and popular animals on our planet.
