Educating Children with Silver Dolphin Books & the Smithsonian + Giveaway

I received complimentary products to provide this post. All opinions are my own.
 
Silver Dolphin Books, publisher of high-quality, activity-based books for children aged 2-12, is proud to announce the launch of an exciting new series of educational books in collaboration with the Smithsonian Institution, the world’s largest museum and research complex, and child literacy expert Dr. Adria Klein: Smithsonian Readers (Paper over board; $14.95; 200 pages). This series is designed to strengthen reading comprehension with structured levels that build upon previous skills, paired with informative content that will keep even the most reluctant readers engaged – from outer space to dinosaurs to Ancient Egypt.
 
 


Smithsonian Readers: Early Adventures Level 1 (ages 4 and up) lays the groundwork with simple sentence structure and familiar content, divided into six 32-page topics: Vehicles, Reptiles, Outer Space, Animal Habitats, Insects, and Safari Animals. Full-color photographs highlight concepts in the text, while multiple-choice quizzes emphasize comprehension. A glossary of terms and 36 illustrated fact cards inspire further exploration of young readers’ favorite subjects.
 
Smithsonian Readers: Seriously Amazing Level 2 (ages 5 and up) builds on the skills developed by the Level 1 reader by introducing varied sentence patterns and more advanced vocabulary, such as contractions, possessives, compound sentences, and three-syllable words. Children can also explore new areas of interest with sections on Nighttime Animals, Sea Life, Dinosaurs, the Solar System, Baby Animals, and the Human Body.
 
Smithsonian Readers: World of Wonder Level 3 (ages 5 and up) engages burgeoning readers with more detailed content about the world around them: Ancient Egypt, Wild Weather, Rain Forest Animals, the United States, the Planet, and Sharks. The Level 3 reader features additional resources to underline concepts and teach new skills, such as maps, diagrams, and illustrations, as well as more complex spelling patterns and longer sentences.
 
Smithsonian Readers: Endless Explorations Level 4 (ages 6 and up) combines the knowledge of the first three levels, urging children to apply their newfound skills with subjects designed to challenge them: Predators, Space Exploration, Natural Disasters, World Wonders, Ocean Habitats, and Flight. Fewer photographs encourage readers to focus on the text for information, while pronunciation guides familiarize them with the more complex vocabulary.
 
Each title in the Smithsonian Readers series features six 32-page sections on high-interest topics, colorful illustrations, multiple-choice quizzes, a glossary, and 36 removable fact cards for additional, on-the-go learning, making these leveled readers the perfect gift for beginning or reluctant readers who are fascinated by history, science, and the world around them.
Also available: Smithsonian Magnetic Adventures: Jungle, Smithsonian Magnetic Adventures: Solar System, Smithsonian Sticker Creations: Wildlife, and Smithsonian Everything You Need to Know: Grades 4-5.

  8. These would be for my children to grow into. I plan on homeschooling, so these are great. As a kid, I was fascinated with all these subjects! It's so hard to choose a single title, but aid choose something from the middle or upper levels, not the first. Little kids can still look at the pictures and mommy and daddy can summarize, early on. Later, there would still be enough to hold an older child's interest.
