Spring 2015 sees the launch of an exciting new website called DKfindout! - a free online encyclopedia for children, brought to you by Publisher DK. DK has been at the forefront of inventive illustrated print publishing for over 40 years, providing best-selling and award-winning books for all ages. DKfindout! pulls together the very best of DK's amazing images and content across a huge breadth of subjects from science and mathematics, to geography and history.The site covers all the points of the new National Curriculum, with particular focus on Key Stage 2, and will continue to be updated with more content throughout 2015 and beyond. The easy-to-read and accessible text and images are supported with sound, video animation and quizzes so that DKfindout! is an immersive and interactive experience. Not only can your children use the website for their homework and projects, but also for looking up and learning more about any subject that fascinates them, from Dinosaurs and Space to Ancient Egypt and the Victorians.

As the site has been developed it has been continually tested by children and parents around the world. Children most importantly, have been exhilarated and highly engaged by the volume of content aimed directly at them, whilst parents have also raved about the site: ‘DKfindout! is a wonderful one-stop shop for children with homework and project assignments’ (Mum of two primary school children). DK has also designed the site for your peace of mind as a parent, creating a safe, age appropriate website for your kids to explore and expand their knowledge of the world.
