I am so excited about this fantastic giveaway sponsored by Scholastic.
Scholastic has released their newest product – Scholastic Discover More, a new non-fiction, print and digital series. This series is absolutely beautiful. The launch of the series premiers two books for each age level: Farm and See Me Grow for Emergent Readers (ages 4+); Planets and Penguins for Confident Readers (ages 6+); and The Elements and Oceans and Sea for Expert Readers (ages 9+).
I am super impressed with the quality of the content of the series and LOVE the digital component. Each book comes with a code to access the website which may be used on more than one computer–yippee! I’m not sure which book and digital content my 7 year old nephew and 4 year old niece liked the best. When asked which ONE they liked the best, I couldn’t nail them down. They loved all of them no matter the age.
This Scholastic Discover More series is whiteboard-compatible for classroms and offers rich supplemental materials and teaching tools such as in-depth articles, charts, quizzes and video to support the text. Children will fall in love with the chance to join scientist on explorations.
All teachers and students will be overjoyed with the content, both print and digital. As a librarian, I am excited with the sturdiness of the binding and covers of the books. The Farm and See and Grow books for younger scientists has a unique thicker page….not quite a board book….but more than paper, making the book easier for the younger students, yet tough enough to withstand the beating the little one dish out, even on hardcover books. Planets and Penguins and The Elements and Oceans and Sea are constructed with a paperback type cover, but much more than the typical paperback. What impressed me the most is the binding is actually sewn! Yep, SEWN–the pages won’t be falling out anytime soon.
