Resources for the early years and Key Stage 1
The Britannica Discovery Library is a delightful, illustrated 12-volume set of “concepts and values” e-books specifically created for those aged 3-6. It introduces a range of texts and genres, including rhymes, narratives, puzzles and riddles. To aid those teaching children to read, key vocabulary words are highlighted throughout and defined at the end of each book. The set is an ideal way to build languages, critical thinking and comprehension skills.
The history of Britannica, and the clarity of the information within the content made Britannica really stand out for us.
