I first encountered Usborne Books & More when a friend invited me to attend an online party. I only purchased two books because I wanted to support her party but realistically I didn’t get too excited as my son was in a rut with reading and wouldn’t sit for ANY book. When our books arrived they were a home run! He made me read Nibbles the Book Monster four times straight. Four! I needed more of these miracle books so I hosted a party of my own because by then my wishlist was out of control. When we got our haul of free and half priced books I just knew that we had to share them with as many people as possible. We literally have something for everyone from the tiniest baby in your life to the young adults in your life. Heck, I love some of our books and coloring books for me!
