The festive season was awash with gifts for little ones, but now the wrapping paper has been ripped off and toys have been discarded to the ‘played with’ box, what will hold their attention now?

Book publishers Explorer, have launched The Key to Abu Dhabi, an illustrated encyclopaedia that’s bursting with information about the city, its culture and heritage.

As we flipped the pages we found impressive imagery and fun facts about landmarks, getting around, local animals, as well as the history of the city.  There are also extensive details about Al Ain and The Empty Quarter.
