Usborne books were the first UK childrens publishing company to produce books with Internet links to more content, called Quicklinks. These books include links via the Usborne Quicklinks Website to recommended websites that complement and enhance the information in the book with movies, sounds, pronunciation guides, games and quizzes on the Internet. There are now over 200 Usborne Internet-linked books including atlases, encyclopedias, language books and dictionaries. Usborne also publishes cut-out models, craft kits and puzzles.
In the late 1990's, Usborne Books recognized the educational and entertainment value of the Internet and strove to link the power of the written word and the vast information available on the web together to enhance a reader's learning experience. In 2000, the very first Internet-Linked Quicklinks books were launched in the United States and the number of Internet-Linked and Internet-Referenced titles has grown each year.
The items shown below are only our Usborne books with Internet links.
