Nature Study and More with The Raft


 The Raft by Jim LaMarche tells the sweet story of Nicky and his summer stay with his grandma, at her cottage on a lazy river.  At first, Nicky is unhappy with the arrangements, but his attitude and his summer changes with the appearance of an old raft. 

Nature Study and More with The Raft allows your students to discover a peaceful river habitat in Wisconsin. The study includes comprehension and discussion questions, writing assignments, vocabulary, fact-finding, mapping, ready-made forms and enrichment activities.  This study guide is most suitable for elementary-aged students, but it can be used for older or younger students as well, with reasonable modifications as needed for your family members.

We thoroughly enjoyed reading The Raft and this was a great study guide to go along with it. It got us talking about the book more and our lives. We love to draw and got to do some of that too. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did! [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
