4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely book but..., 31 Jan 2010
This review is from: Victorians (Usborne British History) (Usborne History of Britain) (Paperback)
I bought this for my son as he's currently studying the Victorians at school and not very enthusiastic about the subject. However, we already have the Usborne History of Britain and this is just the Victorians section of the larger book, repackaged. I frequently find this a problem with Usborne books: they're excellently written and engaging for children but Usborne seem to feel they have to revamp the titles frequently and it's often difficult to know that a title is an update (especially when buying on line). Having said that, if you don't have the History of Britain then I'd highly recommend this title - varied in the subjects it tackles and informative. My son still doesn't think the Victorians are as interesting as the Romans though!

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful series, 26 Mar 2009

Don't be fooled by the colourful pictures. These books are very suitable for all ages over 11 as a diving board into history. They set the scene perfectly with the perfect balance of information beautifully laid out. From there one can explore the music, art, politics, architecture etc of the period. Excellent.

As a parent, you have to love Usborn ebooks. They're a bit like Ronseal, they do exactly what they say. For children, this book is informative and has helped my daughter feel more engaged with her school class project. Well worth it.
