Would recommend. This is a great book to read with your children. Great pictures and set out nicely. Also has internet links if your child wants to go on line to check out more about that particular era.

This is a great book, but don't waste your money buying the mini versions, they seem (from the sample pages) to be identical content to the main book, so you will end up paying many times more buying the smaller books.

Buy this one instead: The Usborne Internet-linked Children's Encyclopedia

It seems no longer available new - but this version also has 320 pages, so I guess it is the same but newer: Children's Encyclopedia (Usborne Internet-linked Reference)

I bought this book for my daughter who is 5. It is about the right level for her and would probably suit up to about age 10. The pictures are good for the younger reader and the internet links an added bonus.

I have an Usborne History book from 1981, which is a big thick book and my 8 year old daugher had started looking through it, taking facts etc for school homework.I was looking for a more updated version and this is what I found. It's alot thinner than the one I have and doesn't cover as many topics, and as I had bought it to try and encourage my 8 year old to read more, felt the 2 pages that covered each era was not not really enough information. It does give you web lins to find out more which is good in some ways but feel a bit more info on the pages would have been better.
Overall a great book, and there are others to buy

Love these first encyclopedia's and so do the children. Reminds me why the internet can never really replace the delight of a good book and the important part they play in children's learning and development.

Ok, but many of the pages in here are just exactly the same as what is in the children's encyclopedia, so this was disappointing.
However, then pages are informative and my son loved it.
