I think Lovereading4kids is an amazing company because of the friendly staff and the fabulous chance to read great books before publication.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

In celebration of Usborne's 40th Birthday this year, a special edition of one of their first books has been published - The KnowHow Book of Spycraft - by the mysterious Falcon Travis - an ever-popular title and Peter Usborne's all time favourite!

Usborne Publishing is one of the biggest and most successful children’s publishing houses in the UK, and this year is celebrating 40 years of brilliant Usborne books.

Set up by Peter Usborne in 1973, Usborne Publishing pioneered a completely new generation of entertaining, colourful and friendly non-fiction books, and now publishes almost every type of children's book for every age from baby to young adult.

Since its foundation, Usborne has been the publisher that children themselves love for its humorous, factual and fun books. Usborne books are available around the world, both in English and in over 100 other languages.
