I had a wonderful Home Show with Becky! She made invites easy buy providing an e-invite to share with potential guests as well as fun gifs which made everyone excited about the Show. The day of, she brought numerous titles for me and my guests to look through which we all thoroughly enjoyed. Becky answered any and all questions we had and gave lots of information about Usborne books and the importance of reading to our children. She also shared ways to save money by purchasing combined volumes, sets, and customer specials. My show was a huge success and my family and I were ecstatic to receive over $500 in free and half price books! 🙂

My son was able to find two series of books that were perfect for a pre-teen boy. We found age appropriate selections, which have held his interest. The content is exciting for him, provide adventure and stretch his reading skills.
