Children's encyclopedia with QR links
Well laid out, visually captivating and includes some key facts that are useful and interesting for young inquiring minds. This made a generous bedtime story that was difficult to put down! Introduces subjects that could initially be overwhelming to children in easily digestible two page chapters. Thanks Usborne for being one of the few publishers that still makes quality entertaining and informative books that do not dumb down or trivialise imagination for the younger generation!

Websites do occasionally experience problems. If a link isn't working we recommend leaving it a while and trying again. If the site is still down the following day please report the problem using our contact form. We will fix the problem as soon as possible, or find an alternative link.
If this is the first time you have used Usborne Quicklinks and you can't see ANY links, you may need to adjust your web browser settings. To find out how to do this, see Help & Advice.
The links in Usborne Quicklinks may vary slightly from those described in your book because when a website closes down, or we find a better site, we update the links in Quicklinks. (If we remove any of your favourite sites let us know!)
