Scholastic Discover More Series

Grades K-2
Grades 2-4
Grades 5 and up
Scholastic has recently launched an exciting new nonfiction series, Discover More.  Each volume is informative and visually attractive.  The books are aimed at three levels of readers, from Kindergarten through Middle School.  Spectacular color photographs and thoughtful book designs ensure that children will be drawn to the books.  Parents and teachers get a special bonus--each book comes with a free digital book.  After loading the companion eBook  onto a PC, Mac, or iPad, readers get more information about the topic, including videos, animations, and additional text and photos.  Titles for "Emergent Readers" include See Me Grow, Farm, Animal Babies, and My Body; "Confident Readers" have Planets and Penguins; while Expert Readers can tackle The Elements and Ocean and Sea.  Library patrons can make use of the digital books because code within each printed book allows access to the digital book and can be used multiple times.  These books are a great way to get kids excited about nonfiction!--Lucinda Whitehurst.  (The Elements by Dan Green; Ocean and Sea by Steve Parker; Penguins, Planets, See Me Grow, and Farm by Penelope Arion and Tory Gordon-Harris; Animal Babies by Andrea Pinnington and Tory Gordon-Harris; My Body by Andrea Pinnington and Penny Lamprell; all Scholastic, 2012)
