Reader Reviews

Loved by many ages
My 3-7 yr olds love to have this read to them and sit to look at the big colorful pictures. My 9 yr old enjoys reading it to herself. I appreciate the variety of topics that are organized into categories, and that the QR codes are so easy to use.

Perfect for a Five Year Old
My five year old loves this book! He got it for Christmas and we've read a few pages every night. It keeps him interested and asking questions. He really comprehends what we read about and it's a fun book to read.

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!
