Explore the unknown in this thrilling adventure that has readers solving real-world problems!

The Locators are on the job! A group of kids solving problems in the world using maps, technology, and spatial thinking, the Locators are determined to help those who need it. After crash landing in the Amazon during their first mission, Lucy, Oliver, and Moe the Parrot embark on an exciting adventure through South America. It’s up to Lucy and her friends to find and protect several endangered species that are in immediate jeopardy. From rockslides in the Andes mountains to volcano eruptions in the Galapagos Islands, the team experiences it all as they rush to complete their mission in time. Will you help them succeed?

Using different color maps and clues, readers can help the Locators on each step of their journey by completing the illustrated activity at the end of each chapter. This hands-on approach encourages critical and spatial thinking, while also reinforcing reading comprehension and vocabulary.

Full of fun, full-color illustrations, activities, and tons of facts about endangered species, habitats, and more, this adventure keeps kids interested and makes learning easy.

At the end of the story, readers can get their own Locator member ID number and become part of the team!
