At Usborne Books & More, we are not only in the business of books, we are also in the business of sharing. Each and every day, there is a consultant in the country who is sharing about the importance of reading, book ownership, and even the opportunity to build your own business.
Books are the foundation of education. Learning to read well with proficiency leads to success in school and beyond.
We have over 1,800 books for your kids to choose from. At the core of our philosophy are to produce high quality books that are interesting and entertaining for children to read.
Peter Usborne, founder of Usborne Publishing believes:
Children are clever – they are our equals. We shouldn’t talk down to them, but look across at them. Books should be friendly, ans 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.
Kane Miller’s philosophy is simple:
We publish those books that speak to us–and those that will speak to [your] children. Our books are award winning books from authors and illustrators from around the world. We believe in the importance of introducing children to books from other countries, cultures, and communities. We publish books that make your kids say: “Wow that’s just like me” and also “Wow, that’s different.” We publish books that makes kids say, “I want to go there someday, or “Wow, that’s a silly story.” And maybe also know that someone somewhere in another part of the world is thinking and saying, “Wow” about the same exact book. And parents will help their kids make those connection in their read aloud time.
Our books help bridge the cultural divide and bring us all closer together.
