About Usborne Books

In the 1970's, it was clear that children were being entertained, not educated, by television and comic books. Peter Usborne recognized that books would have to change in order to compete for children's attention. By incorporating concepts used by comics and TV, as well as consulting with educators, Usborne books were born. Usborne books are designed to draw children in through colorful illustrations and photos, and often use humor to deliver information in short, concise paragraphs aimed to hold their interest. Research shows that when a child's interest is held, they will continue to pursue and retain knowledge.
