Here’s a 5-minute video of a variety of our picture books and chapter books including some of the ones just released this month. Keep in mind this is only a sampling of our entire line. Contact me with questions or to schedule a shopping day to see these and others for yourself. No obligation and you’re welcome to have friends and/or children join us. Or not. 🙂
I can also help with book fairs, read-a-thons, fundraisers, you name it. If you can dream it, we can do it. Let’s talk!
I remember as a kid being so excited to get each new book from the monthly book club. I’m sure that was one of the key factors that turned me into an avid reader. I eagerly dived into each book to see what adventures awaited me.
At Usborne Books & More that’s exactly the feeling we want your kids to have about reading. One way you can encourage that is by giving them the gift of brand new, thrilling books to read each and every month for a year.
This is a really easy gift because I do all the work. I pick out age-appropriate books for each child, you can say yay or nay or leave the gifting up to me. Each child will be delighted to receive fun, new books all through the year. If that doesn’t make an avid reader out of them, I don’t know what will! Ask if you’d like more info about Usborne Books & More’s monthly book club.
Have you seen our Shine-a-Light series yet?
Pair these with a small flashlight and these make fantastic gifts. Each right-hand page has hidden secrets that can be discovered by shining your flashlight behind the page. What fun you’ll have gathering round at bedtime to discover the hidden pictures!
Children love learning about the habitats hidden in the foliage, a tree trunk, or underground. Train lovers and fans of construction vehicles get to see the inner workings normally hidden from sight. Get one or invest in several. Your kids are going to love these!
I’ve been waiting for this since I saw it at our National Convention this summer. Not only is it a bright, beautifully-illustrated thesaurus but this one includes games and tips for writing. This is so much fun, you’ve got to see it! Take a look and let me know if you want one (or more) for your family or classroom collection.
Don’t want to clean your house for a “real” show? I bet you know a lot of people who would love to shop from home after the little ones are in bed. Let’s do your show on Facebook!
STEP 1 – Contact Me to Set Your Party Date
I’ll set up your Facebook Event page and plan occasional posts and pics to get everyone excited about your special day. You can start inviting people right away (moms and kids) or I can do that for you. I’m happy to help!
STEP 2 – Use Birthday Party Invitations as Reminder Cards
Kids love to get mail so we can make them feel really special and remind their moms about the party at the same time. Email me a quick guest list with addresses and I’ll take care of this for you too.
STEP 3 – Prepare as You Normally Would for the Birthday Party (but it’s even easier then that!)
What makes this so simple?
1. You don’t need to buy party favors for the guests. All the kids will be getting new books so you don’t have to stress about shopping for them and you don’t have the stress on your wallet either.
2. The guests don’t have to shop for a present for your child so no stress for them either.
3. Your child gets to pick out all the free books earned so they get exactly what they want. No more gifts to return, no more acting like they like it when they don’t, no more getting gifts that they already have.
4. You can easily arrange for party games or a sleepover after the shopping time is done, or send them all home if sleepovers aren’t your thing. In any case, you get a chance to get to know your child’s friends and their parents a little better. And in today’s fast-paced world, that’s always a good thing.
Set your date today. If you are not in my area but still want to do this, contact me and I’ll find an Usborne Books & More rep in your area.
I remember having some of these art books a long time ago but now, I think you have to be looking for them. I haven’t run across something like this in my local grocery store book selection lately. These are so much fun you’ll probably want to join in. I’ve included a video of the Magic Painting Book. You just have to see it for yourself.
Isn’t that delightful? I wish the background music could be included with every book purchased as well!
