Explorer comes in six editions, each developed to meet students at their level. Compare the sample issues below to find which edition is right for your students.


AN INCLUSIVE RESOURCE That Meets STudents Where THey Are

We believe that young readers should never feel alienated from their peers, which is why Explorer's grade levels are not located on the front of each issue. Instead, grade levels are hidden on the back of each issue. Look for the dots!
