About The Book

Chillax with the trends, fashion, technology, and inventions of the 2000s in this Level 2 Ready-to-Read full of fun facts, illustrations, and interactive backmatter!

In the 2000s, Juicy Couture velour sweatsuits and trucker hats were all the rage, American Idol was the show to watch, social media sites like Facebook and YouTube were launched, and a little thing called Y2K threatened to shut down the world! Kids will love learning about what was cool in the aughts, from popular toys like Bratz dolls to must-see TV like Dora the Explorer and The Powerpuff Girls—not to mention off-the-wall food trends like Heinz green and purple ketchup, popular fashion like Uggs, and technology like Netflix DVDs. Lighthearted illustrations, photographs of the fashion and fads, and approachable language introduce young readers to all this and more hallmarks of the chill decade.
