Another fun and educational journey with MAX in the Travels with MAX® series. Travels with MAX participates in Apple's Volume Purchase Program that allows educational institutions to purchase MAX’s books at a discount and distribute to schools and teachers.
The Teacher's Guide, which includes the student edition, provides a variety of ways to integrate lesson plans into a broad-based curriculum of reading, language arts, social studies, geography, math, science and art. Fun classroom activities and review quizzes are included. Recommended for 2nd and 3rd grades.
The student book, written with the assistance of the Associate Curator of the White House in 1994, has been modified from the original edition to conform to digital format. This multi-touch book teaches children about the founding of America and the history of the White House. Kids travel with MAX, a famous author and V.I.K. (Very Important Koala), from Australia to the White House. On their journey, they meet the President and learn about his roles and responsibilities, tour rooms in both the East and West Wings, enjoy fun facts about Presidents and kids who have lived in the White House, and more!
Engaging illustrations, easy-to-read text, fun, educational interactive activities and silly sound effects enable kids to experience the joys and rewards of reading, learning and laughing. The student edition, included in the Teacher's Guide, can be purchased separately. To learn more about the White House, read MAX's multi-touch chapter book titled Travels with MAX: Mystery at the White House - A President is Missing!
A portion of the proceeds from this book will be donated to two charities that support Braille literacy for children: Braille Institute and National Braille Press. To learn about these charities and MAX's other books, plus MAX's future TV specials, please visit us at www.travelswithmaxbooks.com.
