Press reviews

“This Usborne book (don't let the 'Beginner's Nature' name fool you - - it's an Usborne imprint) is fantastic and our favourite. Solid information broken down into a different category in each spread. It's not an easy reader, some of the 'chapter' headings seem a little extraneous, but it's a very meaty book with lots of facts a child can dig into.'”
