Explorer Academy Codebreaking Activity Adventure (Explorer Academy #2.5) by National Geographic Kids

(ISBN13: 9781426333071
My thoughts:  Details, details, details. Reading National Geographic books expands one's capacity to absorb the details simply because they provide such an amazing array of subjects. Their "Kid's" books are simply fabulous. When they started the "Explorer Academy Series" of middle reader level books, I was amazed at the interest and desire to read these stories foster.

Now the series includes a Code-Breaking Activity Adventure where the reader can crack the code in a variety of methods. Looking for clues and tie one clue or adventure to another.

Simply fun that clearly drives the "pay attention to the details" in one's reading that is so very vital as one grows into increasingly complex reading modes through educational pursuits.

So grab one of these for that middle reader and help them have some fun and pay attention to the details.

Explorer is so much fun, it even comes to breakfast!

Parent note: Keep in mind that this is an activity book and requires writing so if you have more than one kiddo in your clan, you'll want to get each a copy.

I recommend.

About the book: Unlock ancient puzzles and secrets introduced via supercool codes and ciphers in this companion book to the new Explorer Academy series.

In the first activity book based on the Explorer Academy, kids test their knowledge of ancient codes and ciphers in a series of head-scratching puzzles designed to outwit even the most clever cryptographers. When kids successfully navigate the codes, they are rewarded with a first-class tour of the Academy.

Kids will have a blast, teaming up with the characters from the series and learning firsthand from the world's most renowned scientists, explorers, conservationists, photographers, and journalists. It's a far-flung adventure, too, traveling to historic and majestic locations around the globe.
