We have many Usborne books on our bookshelves. Always fun and engaging. We recently purchased the Write Your Own Comic book for my son and my other children wanted a copy of their own after looking through it. The craft books are a big hit too. Quality paper and graphics.

My daughter loves these books! She is a very active, kinesthetic learner who doesn't like to sit still. These books, however, keep her mesmerized. She would like to do all of her homeschooling with Usborne books if that were possible. Great illustrations and interesting text. Highly recommended.

I have the ancient world history to go along with the story of the world. We love the color pictures and the details on each page. I bought the world geography book this year to go along with our geography studies. They are great books to use to supplement any curriculum. They are so easy to use.

Our bookshelves are over flowing with Usborne Books. They have captured my children's attention since they were infants. I highly recommend their Very First Reading set if you have a child that is just learning to read. The only con I hear from some, include their science books. They are a secular company, so you will find science books that state millions of years among other things. If you do not believe this theory, I believe these books can still be used as a great discussion tool. We love our Usborne books!!!

Usborne books are a treasure-trove of information on favorite subjects and interests of all sorts. We find them all the time at thrift stores and snap them up, but the online catalog is tantalizing, and I think I would rather that well-meaning relatives gift my kids with a USBORNE gift certificate than with whatever they think my kids are into.
Quality books that are genuinely fascinating, are worth spending money on, and actually inspire an interest in reading. I also find their science reference books particularly valuable for being visual, concise, and really illustrating relationships and ideas well. A picture is worth a thousand words, and the right marriage of pictures to words, is worth even more, for conveying meaning in an interesting way. We love Usborne books!

We love love, love Usborne books! They have a wonderful selection of both fiction and nonfiction books that really appeal to and hold my young child's attention. I personally am in love with their nonfiction books - especially their encyclopedias.

The cost can be a bit more than books from other publishers, but I promise you they are worth it. I view these books as a good investment, as they are always asked for every day to be read over and over again.

If you don't like to pay for shipping or would like to look at the books before you buy, my best advice is to hit up your local craft and home school fairs. I know around here there is almost always an Usborne Books stand at these events.

We have used many of the science and history books. They make a nice spine to give overviews and keep timelines, then you can explore some things in depth.

We have sooooo many Usborne books. We love the color, the stories, the great information, etc.... My problem is I end up buying multiples because my kids don't want to share.

I Love Usborne books and grab them whenever I can. I love that so many of the books are interactive...touchy feely, lift the flaps, puzzles, etc. Quality books that are well loved in our home.

Books are beautifully illustrated. Stories are fun, my only complaint is that the board books I have purchased through Usborne have fallen apart at the binding super easy. not very durable for younger children like other board books I have purchased.

I love these books. From the sticker books to the encyclopedias. I'm considering becoming a seller but I'm afraid I'd simply buy up the stock. I've enjoyed these since my children were newborns and now use them for homeschooling. There is simply too much to describe here. Anyone and everyone needs to check out their catalog.
