Description

A 2016 Notable Social Studies Trade Book for Young People (National Council for the Social Studies-Children's Book Council)

Set your spirit of adventure free with this lavishly illustrated trip around the world. Whether you're visiting the penguins of Antarctica, joining the Carnival in Brazil, or taking a canoe safari down the Zambezi River, this book brings together more than 100 activities and challenges to inspire armchair adventurers of any age.

Celebrate the great diversity of our planet: with every turn of the page, you'll come across different animals, people, and sights unique to each of the locations. Look out for two adventurers in every scene as you travel through the book. Discover with them hundreds of things to spot and learn about.

Each section begins with an infographic map of the region it explores, followed by richly detailed two-page spreads featuring its most fascinating locations. You’ll get to go to sleep under the Northern Lights, meet millions of monarch butterflies in the boreal forests of Mexico’s volcanic mountains, shower with an elephant in Chiang Mai, and go snorkeling in the Great Barrier Reef, among many other amazing adventures.

Interesting facts and figures pepper the scenes. Did you know that London’s Big Ben clock bell weighs as much as a small elehant? Or that more than one-third of the world’s commercial supply of pineapples comes from Hawaii? A “Can you find?” page at the back challenges you explore the pages even deeper by locating the pictured people, animals, and things.

With epic adventures from the four corners of the globe and discoveries to be made on your own doorstep, this book will inspire you to set off on your own journey of discovery.
