The Usborne Children's Encyclopedia at WH Smiths for £6 (C&C)

16
Posted 5th Nov
The Usborne Children's Encyclopedia. New edition with QR links.

Saw this in Whsmiths for £6 but part of the 4 for £20.00 offer.
Scanned at £5.00 at the till. (May be another HUKD in there, if all books in the offfer were scanning like that...as some were £8.00!)

I know a lot of people will say these are obsolete, but I was looking for some sort of Encyclopedia for my daughter to use for her homework and general learning.
Really felt like she needed this rather than "OK Google...." For everything!
She has used it tonight and loved it! Looking forward to seeing the videos available with the QR CODES tomorrow.

Even at £6.00 a lovely little extra for under the tree.

Ok, the point is yours. But that’s just keep them on the internet or device rather than stay with the book (maybe)

I hear your point but I really like the balance of book and technology here. I've just tried a few random QR codes and they're actually really good! The first was a quiz, that you can only do if you've actually read the info first and the second was a short video relating to the topic....both I felt enhanced the learning, didn't take away from the book at all.
And off course there's always the option not to use the interactive element of the encyclopedia at all!
What a great idea. What age range do you think this is aimed at? Heat from me. Thank you.
Same price on amazon.

how do they know what subject will capture their interest?
this seems like a good way, get lots of introductions to a subject and if they want more info they can get it
pure internet can lead you to dangerous hours lost looking at fail videos and cute cats
Wow, I've been trying to upgrade my Encarta '98, so this is great.

Be good if people buy at local shops where possible, all things being equal - price, access, availability etc - otherwise our High streets are going to be completely decimated.
