    This book is a great way to get your children interested in astronomy, or to feed their already existing curiousity. The topical book is broken up into smaller categories, and information and statistics are provided along with a discussion of each topic. With colorful pictures, diagrams, and charts, this books will capture attention, and then the small and interesting captions and blurbs of information will hold it. See for Yourself boxes throughout give correlating experiments and activities for children to try. However, the most noticeable feature is that the book is internet-linked.

    In typical, fascinating Usborne style, this updated volume takes readers on a whirlwind tour of 10,000 years of history, from the first farmers to the fall of the Roman Empire. Unlike many other books that focus on this time period, the focus is not only on the Greeks and Romans, but early civilizations from around the world are also represented, including the Hittites, Canaanites, the Hebrew kingdoms, Assyrians, Persians, the early Chinese, early Arab kingdoms, early North Americans, the people of ancient Peru, the Olmecs, the Celts, early African kingdoms, and many more. The focus is more on daily life than events of the time, and examples of housing, architecture, art, weapons, tombs, agriculture, and more are represented for each time period. Visual types will enjoy the cut-away views of structures so they can "see inside" houses and tombs of each civilization. A map and a list of important dates are also included for each civilization. Most pages also include a link to check out a related website that gives readers an opportunity to do things like hear how a Hittite would have said "hello" or play a game of Senet. An excellent resource for any study of ancient history. 96 pgs, pb. – Jess

    This book is obviously an Usborne book; it's overloaded with interesting information and tons of color pictures. But it also has something else: internet links.

    Science in the elementary and middle school years is not complete without an abundance of hands-on activities, in my opinion, anyway. Whether your family uses one of the many fine science curricula available, unit studies, or unschooling, this book will become a frequently turned-to resource to enhance science concepts. Containing 22 categories of experiments, detailed steps, explanations, colorful illustrations, and internet links, there is much here to enhance your studies. The following is just a sampling of things children will make: varied crystals, a wormery, a compass, invisible ink, a butterfly feeder and much more. Other activities include children will see DNA, float an egg, separate mixtures, test their sense of taste and numerous others. The book concludes with an overview of the scientific process and encourages children to do their own scientific research. A glossary and list of experiments make it convenient for parents/teachers to quickly find the right activity to correspond with the day's lesson. SC. 96 pgs. ~Deanne

    This book could make a wonderful art program for younger students, incorporating both art appreciation and projects in a beautiful, easy to use format. The book features 22 impressive works of art from around the world and from a variety of periods. Each work is shown on a spread of pages along with a few short, interesting paragraphs of information about the work itself, the techniques used, and the artist who created it. Then you flip the page to see how you can imitate that work and style using simple materials and methods. For example, the first work highlighted is Van Gogh's "The Starry Night." After looking at the painting and reading about it, you turn to the next page, which has step-by-step directions to help you make your own swirly landscape using thick paints and a plastic fork. In six steps you go from drawing a simple landscape sketch, adding color, and using the fork to manipulate the paint into swirly patterns like those found in Van Gogh's painting. The end products are very attractive, and completing the projects will help students remember the distinctive styles of the artists they've studied. The projects pages are very colorful and offer beautiful illustrations of the finished projects to give students a visual aid. Throughout the 22 works/projects, students will be introduced to 3-D art, paintings, abstract art, prints, collages, Chinese brush painting, and other styles/types of art for a well-rounded but fun early art education.

      This is the cutest little fingerprint-art book for your littles! It includes 50 activity pages in a book that lies flat. Attached to the back cover is a large ink pad (2” x 8”) with 7 vibrant colors. The instructions are easy to follow; you see the beginning of a picture on each page and add to it by dabbing a finger to the ink pad and stamping the page with your inky finger. You might be adding eggs to a nest, making butterflies in the sky, or putting passengers into cars! Once the ink is dry (and your fingers have been washed) you draw over your fingerprints with a black pen to add some detail like arms and eyes. These little creatures are so simple and so cute, you will want to create even more on blank paper! Once your book is complete, you can make up stories about your creations! Each activity page is about 6” x 8” and many cover a 2-page spread.

    Similar in some ways to See Inside Your Body, also by Usborne, this book is packed with more flaps to lift and geared for a slightly younger reading level. In thirteen study pages the book covers digestion, the circulatory system, bones and muscles, the brain, the senses, growing and healing. Most topics are presented on facing pages, with a combination of large and small cartoonish illustrations (all captioned), and flaps integrated on most of them. On the spread about the brain, much of the spread is devoted to a large illustrated flap with the brain, covered with small cartoons of what the different parts of the brain are responsible for. When you lift the main flap, you see an example of what happens when your body sends your brain a message, complete with numbered steps and a line to trace with your finger. The edges of the pages are filled with small illustrated flaps that introduce other facts about the brain: how it is made up of two halves, how the skull protects the brain, how much the brain weighs, etc. To add to the fun, many of these flaps are "nested" with additional flaps hiding underneath with even more information, and occasionally other pull-tabs and pop-ups incorporated as well. Little hands and eyes will find lots to explore here. – Jess

    Punch out and assemble the sturdy pieces, then have a battle! This building set has over 90 pieces that are printed on both sides and are die cut (the castle pieces as well as two opposing armies’ worth of soldiers). They assemble with slots and the directions are pretty simple to follow. The pieces themselves are like a layer of craft foam sandwiched between two layers of cardstock. The included 40 pages softcover book contains info about the different kinds of soldiers included (axe men, kings, queens, knights, assassins, archers, and more!) as well as life in the castle. Everything fits nicely inside of a colorful box for safe keeping. Great for your castle enthusiast or as a way to bring history to life! – Laura

    What could be a boring overview of the different branches of science (materials, plants, anatomy, light, sound, forces, earth and space) truly comes to life in this engaging Usborne presentation. The study book is made up of 8 two-page spreads, each of which allows the reader to discover more about each topic through the lively illustrations, short captions, and over a hundred flaps, fold-outs and tabs. Even more fun are the "flaps within flaps," each of which encourage the reader to dig a little deeper and rewards them with additional fun details. For example, one page on materials is illustrated to look like a shelf, with different objects (a purse, beakers, a vase, a scarf, etc.) labeled with what they are made out of. When you lift the beaker flap, it shows beneath how glass is made from sand which is heated and shaped. Beneath that flap is another illustration that shows why glass is useful for making windows. For only having 13 pages, this is one book that can provide hours of browsing for the curious (and tactile!) learner! – Jess

    This book covers it all, from the dawn of history right up to the year 2000, for all the major civilizations, all the rulers, and all the events in world history. Pages are filled with clear, interesting accounts of historical events, realistic reconstructions of scenes, and tons of incredible photographs. More than 100 charts and maps are included, allowing you to see exactly where events took place. Besides being an intriguing book to read, this is also your link to world history on the web. After reading about a subject, go online; every link leads you to a website where you can read additional information, watch video clips, play games, see photos, and use other unique website features to experience "virtually" all of world history. I was never much for history, but I wish I had this book when I was younger; these websites look really intriguing. For a study of the ancient world you can get virtual tours of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, a virtual walking tour of Rome and Athens, learn to speak Ancient Greek, write in hieroglyphics, take interactive tours of museums, explore the Valley of Kings in Egypt and learn about the pharaohs buried there and their tombs through photos and panoramic movies, view profiles of famous Romans and Greeks, explore a clickable Roman marketplace, and loads more. Some sights are interactive, where you can, for example, reenact the Battle of Hastings, and some are treasure troves of information, maps, timelines, and diagrams.

    Note: The first 100 or so pages of the book discuss the "Prehistoric World" (starting 4,550 million years ago with the Big Bang and proceeding to 12,000 years ago when the last ice age came to an end). This section outlines evolution and likely contains objectionable material. However, the rest of the sections (Ancient World, Medieval World, Last 500 Years) are more factual and make up for the first. A colorful, captivating book. 416 pages. Stephanie

    I don’t know very many children who don’t like stickers. Usborne knows that and they offer over 130 stickers to help children learn about astronomy and space. Every topic is a two-page spread, for a total of 32 pages on which young astronomers can place their stickers. Realistic stickers are labeled so you know on which pages to put them and are large enough for smaller hands to manipulate more easily: 1/2” up to about 5”. Walk with an astronaut on the moon, see the earth from space and see the starry sky from earth, or visit all of our planetary neighbors for a kid-friendly introduction to astronomy and space.

    A book that young children will pick up for the pictures, and older children will enjoy for both the photos and the text, this is an amazing and attractive guide to some of science's most fascinating topics! Nine chapters cover topics such as atoms, matter, materials, energy, motion, electricity, light, technology, and the human body. Although reading the topics may make you yawn, simply crack open this book to any topic, and you'll quickly see how cool science can really be! Each page includes awesome photos, many of which have been taken from electron microscopes, or at least at very high magnification, which shows how awesome some of these "hard-to-imagine" things are, like viruses, spider spinnerets, strands of nylon, cables, cells, and more! Also notable are the detailed diagrams, photos, and images of other, larger items. Each page features general information about the topic, followed by more specific information on subtopics in a smaller font. The section on the internet includes some general information on the internet, and how it is used today, followed by some short sections on internet connections being included on common household appliances, how faster Internet connections are designed, internet communications to outer space, and cyber criminals. Most pages also feature a link to a cool website (through Usborne's own site, so that they can be continually updated), which allows kids to access interactive websites that feature a related activity or additional information. Incorporating the newest technology with some of the neatest concepts in science, this volume is sure to grab - and hold - kids' attention, even ones that don't think they're interested in "science." 96 pgs, sturdy softcover. - Jess
