About 30 second books

Each book is filled with a 30 second readable fast fact section on each page, complimented with mini challenges and 1 sentence summaries. The graphics and illustrations are fun and colourful and remind me of the perfect revision tool for learning for exams, but on a junior scale. As a parent you will be impressed with the content and delivery, as a child you’ll be fascinated by the explanations and easy referencing. These books really deliver on every level and would make a wonderful collection. Priced at just £7.99 each it is an affordable purchase too. I’d say they are perfect for children age 7 to 11.
