Usborne books were always my favorite books when I was growing up. As an adult, Usborne books are still the favorite books in our house, loved both by the adults reading them and by Jaye and Cy themselves!
Usborne books are so engaging, educational, and just plain fun. Peter Usborne, the founder, explains the attitude that makes these books the favorite of kids everywhere: “Children are clever – they are our equals. We shouldn’t talk down to them, but look across at them. Books should be friendly, and as much like magnets as possible. They should be reliable and accurate, stylish and artistic.They should be accessible, and also surprising and provocative. Books should help get you off your couch so you’re not just sitting there watching TV and chewing gum. They should promote wondering. They should be better than good.”
Typically, Usborne books are sold through in-home parties or the new trend of “Facebook parties.” I’d be happy to help you do either an party in your home if you are local to DFW or an online “Facebook party” anywhere in the world. As the party hostess, you would earn free books for hosting the party! Just send me an email to [email protected] or reach out through my Usborne books page on Facebook.
But ugh, you say, I don’t want to mess with hosting a party, I just want to order my books in peace, quiet, and anonymity. I’ve got you covered there as well, you can browse, shop, and buy Usborne books here.
