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 want to share with you a comment from a small elementary school’s club. They are currently doing our CARDS FOR A CAUSE FUNDRAISER and they had this to say about the program.
“This is the easiest fundraiser I’ve ever done! One of my girls said she asked a few neighbors if they’d like to order the cards and they were very happy to – they liked that it was 30 cards for $30 and that the cards were so nice. The little girl said ‘all you have to do is ask and they buy them!’ “

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.

the British founder of Usborne Books Publishing, Peter Usborne, and his two adult children have developed a free online game through their charitable fund, the Usborne Foundation? Created by reading experts and gaming professionals, this game has been available to kids around the world for four years now and your kids can use a PC or laptop and join the fun too. A downloadable App is also available for a small fee.
Told from the girl’s perpective and then the beast’s, A Tale of Two Beasts depicts what happens when a little girl rescues a strange beast from the woods. This wonderfully entertaining tale introduces children to the idea that every story has two sides and it’s important to consider the other side too. This is fantastic for reading aloud and for reading in groups as well.

Here’s a new one called Secrets of the Seashore for all your spring and summer beach vacations (and to remind you of past vacations). This one’s just like Secrets of the Apple Tree but you get to see the hidden habitats of the seas and oceans instead. These make great gifts when paired with small flashlights to shine through the pages. Enjoy these with the favorite people in your life and share loving reading experiences that will encourage your child’s natural curiosity and love of learning.
