Usborne are a fantastic publisher, they write all books in-house in a careful manner, thinking about what can benefit children and their reading journey. So far, Usborne has more than 3000 titles published and has helped millions of children globally on developing essential reading skills. From early books like touchy feely which engage with babies with soft cute characters to books with more complex vocabulary. Peter Usborne, the founder of Usborne in 1973 wanted to help children develop reading skills in a fun way and during his era, books with fully illustrated pages were rare. 

All the Usborne books are written in-house in London, but the books are translated into over 100 languages and enjoyed by children around the world! Languages translated into such as French, German, Korean, Chinese, Italian, Dutch, Portugeuse and more. A study done by Oxford University in 2008 has found that around half of all year 1 students in the UK are in need of improving their literacy skills. Other benefits from reading from a young age include learning empathy, connecting with other people of different backgrounds. 

The books that Usborne creates are carefully designed and the majority are done in a way that is suitable for talk-about, these books are fantastic for reading and sharing ideas between parents and children. The books are also excellent for helping children form new sentences, words, and improve confidence in reading. With the combination of visual illustrations and engaging characters, children are able to adapt to stories and learn new words quickly by following the fun tales and forming associations between words and images. Many Usborne books contain pages with the repetition of words, these techniques will help babies remember words and get them stuck on their minds. As well as this, the pages are designed with the help of rhyming words and carefully done with rhythm, these methods will help children follow the story easily with flow. Many books contain topics that children will eventually come face to face with, such as feelings of happiness and sadness, family, personal hardships and empathising and being kind to one another which could be beneficial for making friends. Usborne books are also a well recognised and trusted source for providing fantastic books for children, hundreds of schools and teachers across the nation use Usborne books to help their pupils. In 2014, Usborne was awarded the IPG Children’s Publisher and Independent Publisher of the Year awards

"Usborne books are trusted by teachers and education professionals everywhere for their impeccable quality, and are guaranteed to engage, educate and entertain children of all ages. In 2014, Usborne was awarded the IPG Children's Publisher and Independent Publisher of the Year awards.

Our aim is to create the very best books for children – books they read again and again, that they carry with them everywhere, read under the bedcovers by torchlight and that they remember into adulthood. We want children to think books are amazing, exciting, entertaining, fascinating and full of wonder.  And we know kids are smart, so we never talk down to them.

For parents, we strive to be there every step of the way, helping new parents introduce their babies to books that will stimulate and engage them, and supporting parents as their children learn to read, grow in confidence and start reading to learn. We love to see kids grow with Usborne." - Usborne
