Where Are the Galapagos Islands? (Where Is?) Reviews
I'm a teacher and bought this so I could 1) learn about the Galapagos before talking about them and 2) keep a copy of the book in my classroom. It's a great read for kids aged 7-13, depending on their reading ability. It's well-organized and interesting.
My grandsons (10 1/2) have read it and re-read it and love it!
Great delivery - great book for our school library
I got this for my niece it was dramatic as she was able to discover where the Galapagos our previously Google maps it not been able to locate them nor head Apple Maps but thanks to this book she can no point to them on any globe fairly accurately whether they're not there actually depicted on the globe
Excellent book! My son loved it! Great information in here.
