“Nobody does Christmas quite like Usborne”
Pam Norfolk in the Lancashire Evening Post.
Founded by Peter Usborne in 1973, Usborne books are conceived and created by editors/writers and designers directly in their offices in London, and illustrated by artists worldwide. The way they work makes their books different from other children’s books, and this is what makes them so well loved ! Usborne France arrived in 1985 with the same books as the UK ones but published in French.
Here is a little selection of gift ideas for Christmas to please both French speaking and English speaking children ! Get creative with magic painting, sticker and colouring books !
Full of festive illustrations, such as a gingerbread cottage, a beautifully decorated Christmas tree and Father Christmas and his reindeer, which are transformed when children carefully paint them with water.
With a laminated flap to place behind each page to stop the colour seeping through and ensure perfect results.
Festive scenes of Christmas Land, a snowball fight and Santa’s workshop ensure lots of seasonal spotting fun.
Items to spot within the main picture are shown in the border as silhouettes and each has a corresponding sticker which children can find, match and add in the correct place.
Hours of puzzle-solving Christmas fun that will also help children to develop vital skills.
The ten stylish designs include red robins, a row of cute penguins, patterned Christmas stockings, a decorated Christmas tree and more.
A charming and personal way to send Christmas wishes that will also keep children occupied over the busy festive season.
