Science and nature are interesting for kids, and Smithsonian Readers capitalizes on this desire to learn more about these topics. Early Adventures covers safari animals, animal habitats, insects, vehicles, outer space, and reptiles. Beautiful photos fill each page, bringing the text alive and making it more engaging. Each section closes with a multiple choice quiz to determine reading comprehension.
The Smithsonian Readers series is designed for early, developing, engaged and fluent readers. In this level 1 book, kids will read basic factual texts with familiar content and simple repeated sentence structures.
Smithsonian Readers: Early Adventures Level 1 is sure to generate some curiosity and enthusiasm in the home and classroom. I highly recommend it.
