We love books but there is a limit to what can fit on the printed page and children who love to learn know they can explore the internet for more.

Usborne internet-linked books (IL) are enhanced with links to recommended websites with virtual tours, video clips, games and activities that bring the information in the books to life. In an internet-linked book internet links appear throughout the book. In an internet-referenced (IR) book there is a list of links at the back of the book.

Websites change from time to time so rather than printing web-links in books readers are invited to visit the Usborne Quicklinks website where the links are maintained and updated. Usborne Quicklinks editors regularly review the recommended websites. If a link stops working or fails to meet their strict safety and quality criteria, it is updated or replaced.

At the Usborne Quicklinks website, each book has a webpage with links to click on to visit the recommended websites.

Some books also have QR codes printed on the pages. You can scan the QR codes with a smartphone or tablet to go straight to multimedia websites with video clips, sounds and interactive quizzes.

Here are some of the things you can do through the links at Usborne Quicklinks:
  • Listen to a tiger roar
  • Take a virtual tour to the Sun - or Antarctica
  • Zoom in on artworks in galleries around the world
  • Dress a knight in armor
  • Watch video clips, listen to music and foreign languages
  • Find animated explanations and homework help
  • Play learning games and do virtual experiments
