We love all kinds of books over here, but many of our favorites are Usborne books. The Usborne love started years ago. First it was the That’s Not My… series, and then for years we obsessed over the 1001 Things to Spot series. I can still find all the dung beetles in Leo’s favorite 1001 Bugs to Spot with quickfire speed, folks! I’ve noticed that, since homeschooling, our Usborne book pile has grown and grown and grown. Many of our homeschool books are Usborne. I am in love with their internet-linked encyclopedias and nonfiction texts, and the kids can’t get enough of the look-inside series and science books. Recently, I was thinking about our growing Usborne collection and the fact that I don’t know a local consultant (and this is a big issue for an Usborne lover because Usborne no longer sells on Amazon), and it occurred to me that I should be a consultant. I am so not a salesperson, but c’mon… anyone who knows me know I’m a teeny-tiny bit book-obsessed. So, cheers to new adventures- this year has certainly been chock-full of them, folks! If you are book obsessed, or if you share my Usborne love, I encourage you to read on…
What is Usborne?
Thirty years ago Peter Usborne pioneered a new generation of books that prove that it is possible to create books that compete with the vast media that attracts children today. From activity books, to neat fiction series, to amazing nonfiction books including internet-linked science and history encyclopedias and a look-inside series that your children will adore, Usborne does books better.
Usborne and Kane Miller books are among the most exciting, engaging, and educational books on the market today. They are high quality, innovative, beautifully illustrated and best of all they are the books kids love to read. Choose from almost 2000 bright colorful and fun titles covering a wide variety of subjects. Kane Miller books come from all over the world to bring a different feel, culture, or just a silly story that kids everywhere can enjoy.
