      That is a book every child should read and every adult should read too. I remember when my parents took me to a book fair, I got the big book of inventions, hoping to read every page.

      These are fantastic titles for young people.

      I am new to this blog, within the last month and as well as fab posts like Kidlit radio and the edible book festival you have amazing giveaways too! I had thought about getting these for my son anyway as he is very inquisitive but i might just hold back and see if I win. Thanks for a great blog.

      When I was young, my favourite books were the usborne book of the Universe and Book of Nature- I still have them after 20 years! I would love to be able to give the two above to my friend’s son as I am sure he will teasure them for as long as I have kept mine!

      I’m making a book about a little boy inventor, having grown up with all the usborne books I’d love to look inside these ones, and then pass them onto my 6 year old nephew :-)
