The Lovereading4Kids comment

January 2015 Factual Book of the Month Children love collecting fascinating facts and this lift-the-flap book is packed full of them. From Living Things, Science and The World, to Entertainment, When did it Happen? and a Treasure Trove spread and much, much more. With wonderful illustrations and graphics together with small text boxes and bubbles to reveal the fascinating facts. There's even a 'True or False' spread and a 'Can you match' quiz for all the family to play. All in all a fountain of fascinating facts which is why it's a Book of the Month for us.


Lift-the-Flap General Knowledge by Alex Frith, James Maclaine

Contains over 135 flaps and hundreds of facts. This title shows you how many seeds a pomegranate has, how fast a woodpecker pecks, how many plays Shakespeare wrote, which is the warmest sea in the world, when the Eiffel Tower was built, what type of snack is the heaviest, and more.

'Can you match'

' - Lovereading4kids; 'Perfectly pitched for Key Stage 2, a mix of facts, humour and novelty flaps...This series is proof that the right non-fiction still sells' - The Bookseller; 'The See Inside range is a stonkingly good series of books covering a wealth of topics. They are a4 sized hardbacks crammed full with information and diagrams and hundreds of flaps to lift to see what's going on inside. They really do grow up with children - a sure sign of a quality, well-designed series!' - Rhino Reads; 'A super collection of information books from Usborne, which really engage the reader by providing interesting information, colourful graphics and plenty of flaps with yet more information' - Parents in Touch; 'This rather lovely introduction to the world of facts and the fun behind them is delivered in the publisher's indubitable effervescent house style' - Families South East Magazine'
