You’re invited to a party!!! An Usborne Books party! I’m beyond excited to share this party with you. Over the past couple of years I’ve actually held a couple of these parties in my home and we’ve always had such a great time. The consultant I work with is beyond amazing and Sherri is more than willing to help you find the perfect book for the young readers on your list. There’s really something for everyone here – from board books to chapter books and eBooks to homework helpers.
Here are a couple of my favorites:
This math dictionary has been a great resource for answering the fourth grader’s questions about his homework. Showing him how to look an answer up in the book instead of just Google is also a useful skill.
The little princess has had Usborne board books since she came home from the hospital. Her brothers love look and find books and Baby Sister is one of her favorite look and finds so she can be just like them.
Like I said, the boys like their look and find books. Usborne has them covered there – on a variety of levels. They have the board books that are great for the little ones, but also a couple of other levels to choose from for the older kids too.
One other type of books Usborne has that make great gifts are the activity books. From everything to wind up toys that travel a track on each page to stickers and coloring to drawing and making paper airplanes. These books can provide hours of entertainment. What parent wouldn’t love that??
Do you have a trip in your future over the holidays? Usborne has some activity cards that are perfect for the backseat or your carry on bag. I picked some up last year before we flew to Michigan and the boys really enjoyed them. They come with a dry erase marker in the package so you don’t even need to worry about picking that up. One thing I did do to the cards (at Sherri’s suggestion) was to punch a hole in one corner and put them on a ring. This is perfect – it keeps the cards all together and you can split them into smaller groups if you need to.
Looking for a way to keep in touch with that special kiddo? Check out Usborne’s postcard selection. We’ve got a couple of these (Christmas and another set) and I LOVE them! The kids can color the postcards however they’d like and fill in the blanks or choose a postcard that’s completely blank to write a note of their own.
Before you finish your order, make sure you stop by the Customer Specials page to see what’s over there. Usborne’s really great about giving their hosts AND customers great deals!
I could seriously keep going but you need to go check out the site for yourself. Seriously, there’s something for just about everyone over there. You’ll be able to get a great start on your holiday shopping. Once you order, the goodies will ship straight to you (or whatever address you choose) so you just need to wrap and give. Super easy!
If you’re stuck and not sure what book is the best fit for the kiddos on your gift list, please take a moment to reach out to Sherri through the Usborne page and she will certainly help you find just the right book! Usborne will also stand behind their books. Carolina’s torn a flap from one of her lift the flap books. When you’re ready to repair your book, simply contact your consultant and she’ll help make it happen. You’ll only pay a portion of the original price for them to replace it. Can’t beat that!
In addition to the parties I’ve had at my house, we’ve also been lucky enough to host a read-a-thon at the boy’s school. They had to pledge to read a certain number of minutes or pages per day and were given free books for meeting their goals. Both boys had a wonderful time picking out their free books for doing their normal reading homework every night.
Disclosure: I’m hosting this online party and will be considered the hostess. That means I’ll get some awesome free books when you place your order. If you want to get free books too, consider hosting a party in your home or online like I am. Free books or not, I’d still tell you about these great books because we have them in our home and my kids honestly love them.
