Educational Value of Usborne Books

    • Experts are consulted and each subject thoroughly researched to make sure the information is accurate.  Each subject is presented with unusual clarity and conciseness.
    • The text is accompanied by full-color pictures and diagrams to help one "see", for example, what a Viking settlement looked like or how an engine works.
    • Many "hands-on" projects are presented to allow the student to "test" the concepts.
    • Puzzles are interspersed to develop problem-solving skills and improve comprehension.
    • Our dot-to-dot series displays a number line on the bottom of page for each puzzle.
    • Questions are asked to stimulate curiosity.
