WHY I DO WHAT I DO!
Books weren't abundant in my home growing up but reading was still a priority and my mother regularly took us to the library to check out books and then she would spend many a summer afternoon reading to me and my siblings. I will also never forget the first book that instantly grabbed my attention which was Eric Carle's, The Very Hungry Caterpillar. I was in kindergarten when my teacher shared the book with us. I had never seen a book quite like it with colorful illustrations and tiny holes that the caterpillar had eaten through. I was fascinated with this book and thought it was "magical"! Although I had good examples at home and exposure to books, reading was very difficult for me and I was discouraged after being placed in one of the lowest reading groups in first grade. Eventually I would do anything to get out of reading and it wasn't until 6th grade that my teacher transformed my attitude about reading and books. I don't know what her secret was other than she emphasized reading all the time and shared her love of books with us all. Although I was a slow reader, I eventually grew to love reading also. Part of the reason I became a teacher was to promote literacy as my teacher had for me. Now I am home with my kids and have found so much joy in reading to my kids and helping them discover the magic of books!
WHY I DO WHAT I DO!
I first discovered Usborne Books & More over 10 years ago before I had any children. Being a teacher, I was excited to get my hands on these amazingly unique children's book and bought several for me and anyone I knew with kids. Then I moved and lost contact with the consultant, but still enjoyed my books with my kids as they were born. It wasn't until my sister invited me to a party that I was reminded of all the incredible books available through this company. I was instantly hooked and couldn't get enough books for my family. I decided to host my own party and then realized I had to join to have access to Usborne's amazing books all the time. Since that time, I have loved not only sharing the books with my kids but also with all my friends and enjoy getting to know new people!
