The similar format has the basic term being explored and defined first, with corollary vocabulary and concepts following. Each volume concludes with instructions on using www.factsurfer.com. Factsurfer is a link to pre-selected Web sites on the topic. Although most of the sites given are age appropriate, some help may be required in reading and navigating. Many of the photos presented in the sites are riveting and will spur young learners to want to explore further.
