Alison is a fellow blogger who writes about homeschooling and gardening. I just recently found out that she also sells usborne books. I’ve heard a lot of great things about Usborne. I was looking through her website and I saw that they also sell some great reading games and books/games that help teach your child different languages! There are even some cute craft kits, like this Decorating T Shirt Kids Kit that is on sale for $8.24 (from $14.99). You can pick up T-shirts at Hobby Lobby for $2, what a great low cost Christmas gift that children can make for friends and family members!
It amazed me to find all the wonderful things that Usborne sold. Since I was not completely familiar with the company I asked Alison to write a post explaining the great things about Usborne. She did that and also put together a deal and giveaway for Little People Wealth readers! Here is what she had to say:
Here is a way to save 30-90% on books which will get your kids reading. And children who “read the most also read the best, achieve the most, and stay in school the longest.” To get your kids succeeding, get them reading.
You want to have books in your home and still stay within your budget. It’s a proven fact that kids need to read at home, not just at school. And having quality children’s books in the home combined with visiting the library is more effective in growing a reader than visiting the library alone is.
Usborne books are some of the best children’s books on the planet. They are interactive, colorful, fun, award-winning, and they get kids reading and learning. There are over 1,300 different Usborne books in my Usborne Books & More online store. I also sell multi-cultural Kane Miller books, kid kits (books partnered with activity materials), and math and reading manipulatives from Learning Wrap-ups.
Here is how you save 30-90%.
- Save 40-70% with internet specials. Bookmark my Usborne Books & More internet specials page. Every 2 weeks the selection of books on sale changes. Simply order when you see something of interest.

For the holiday savings club you place your own order every month and accrue a free book allowance to spend at the end of the year (discounted and full-price book purchases go toward your end of year book allowance).
