What to expect from Amazing Expeditions
Take a journey with a different explorer on each double page spread. Follow their journey on a map and through bite sized chunks of writing with corresponding illustrations. Some great voyages and some disasters are covered, but all left their mark on the world. See how we first navigated the seas, deserts, mountains and even our journey into space through 22 great explorers.
