How Trailblazers work.
The first half of each title presents information in a exciting and highly visual form. Here is a spread from the Dinosaur title:


This section provides key vocabulary for the fiction section which makes up the second half of the book. The text is in two forms. The left hand page has the full high interest/low R.A. text. The right hand page offers a reduced version of the text using captions and speech bubbles.
