DKfindout! Series

DKfindout! Series

DK’s new findout! series of books targets ages six through nine with books on a wide variety of science and social studies topics. Books available in the series thus far are Science, Animals, Volcanoes, Dinosaurs, Sharks, Solar System, Stone Age, Ancient Egypt, Ancient Rome, and Pirates.

While many DK books are large, these are 7.5” x 9.5” and have 64 pages each. They have just the right balance of pictures and text, and the text offers just enough information of the sort that will interest children. In each book you will find a few brief quizzes. These quizzes always include pictures, and the correct answers are printed upside down at the bottom of the page spread.

DK findout! books are new, and I expect more titles will be added to the series. All of the above titles are available as print books, and as I write this review, all except Pirates and Ancient Egypt are also available as ebooks.
