Help children develop essential early skills with these beautifully illustrated storybooks for young children. Trek’s Travels follows the adventures of a lovable scarecrow named Trek and his three feathered friends as they travel around the world. Books in this series cover critical early childhood themes and correspond to the Trek’s Travels component of World Book Web’s learning site.

During the preschool years, children develop a variety of important skills they will use throughout school and adult life. The storybooks in Trek’s Travels introduce basic concepts and principles that are foundational to the other learning a child will do in preschool and the early grades. The first storybook introduces the main characters, and each subsequent book focuses on an early childhood theme, such as colors, numbers, sounds, shapes, size, texture, opposites, time, and place. The books also include two pages of activities suitable for young readers.

Each of the 12 storybooks for young children is set in a different location around the world, including Europe, North America, South America, Africa, India, China, and Thailand. By following Trek’s adventures, children will discover many far-off lands as well as visit some places that may be more familiar. The lively and colorful illustrations in the books present many different environments and introduce different peoples around the world.
