Bring the world to your baby!


The first-ever Britannica Encyclopedia for children under three has been launched in a beautifully illustrated, large-format board book in time for Christmas.

Britannica’s Baby Encyclopedia (published by Britannica Books, price £20.99) explores big ideas through a little one’s eyes, covering a wide spectrum of topics: earth, animals, plants, food, machines, art, music, numbers and shapes. The simple and lyrical text, written by Sally Symes, includes plenty of sound words for an enjoyable reading-aloud experience. With an introduction by early years specialist Dr Amanda Gummer, it features more than 200 gorgeous illustrations by renowned illustrator Hanako Clulow and is produced in a ‘lie flat’ format to make it more comfortable for ‘tummy time’.
