"Amazing Expeditions: Journeys that Changed the World" by Anita Ganeri and Michael Mullan (Ivy Kids)

Imagine being one of the lucky folk throughout history that can genuinely claim to be the 'first person' to see the summit of a particular mountain, or perhaps even another planet entirely.

In "Amazing Expeditions: Journeys that Changed the World" by Anita Ganeri and Michael Mullan, you'll meet some of the most amazing people who have made it their life's work to explore, map out and pioneer uncharted territories.

Sometimes their achievements have paved the way to establish trade routes, perhaps open the way for others to follow. Sometimes their efforts have been in the name of science, and sometimes it's been purely 'because it's there' and the personal fulfilment that comes from doing something that you know no one else has.

This book details some of the expeditions and achievements alongside the amazing folk who pushed themselves to the limit in order to achieve their goals - a hugely positive message for kids to aspire to.

Anita's thoroughly researched text is complimented by fabulous illustrations to bring these stories to life from Michael Mullan. Every child who encounters this book will come away with a sense of awe from reading about adventurers throughout history who have expanded our view and understanding of our world and beyond.

Sum this book up in a sentence: An absolute treat of a book summarising some of the most amazing expeditions and journeys undertaken by humans throughout history, not to be missed!
