Friends, I am so excited about today’s post!
Throughout our homeschooling years (5 years to date), a series of books has stayed tried and true for us – Usborne books!
It all started with a book on Ancient Greece when my oldest son was in the 1st grade. I had no idea how this book would spark such a desire in his learning!
As his mama, it was really neat to watch.
Since he was an avid reader early on, he read his Ancient Greece book daily. He dog-eared his favorite pages (soldiers!), he carried it in the car, and he read it at night before bed.
And since then, our own library of Usborne books has grown by leaps and bounds!
I love these books and wanted to get them for free. So it only made sense for me to become an Usborne consultant!
You can watch a quickie video I filmed on our favorite books:
What does this mean for you?
Several things, actually, but FREE BOOKS is the biggest thing it means for you!
♥♥ Each month, I am giving away free books to those active users on my email newsletter that I send out each Friday.
So if you’re not an email subscriber, sign up now!
♥♥ Free worksheets and printables for your unit study!
Since these are such indepth, quality books, it makes sense to have them as a spine for your unit study.
Occasionally I’ll post worksheets and printables that coordinate with the books.
♥♥ It also means that I can help you earn your own set of free books when you hold an Usborne eShow.
An eShow is so simple and I walk you through each step. All you have to do is gather up your friends’ email address that would be interested in purchasing high-quality books, insert the links I give you (super simple), and hit send.
Once we know how much money you’re getting in free books, you choose your books and they’re sent to your house.
So easy! Just contact me at mama (at) mamaslearningcorner (dot) com if you’re interested and want more details!
For the next couple of months, I’m able to offer Double Hostess Dollars, which means you’ll earn double the amount of money you can spend on books!
So sign up for one of those eShows quickly if you’re interested. It’s a perfect way to get several books for your homeschool for free!
♥♥ Lastly, each week (or two), I’ll share the books that are on sale at a deep discount.
If you find sale books you’d love to own, just click and order. Your order is immediately verified and the books ship quickly.
Again, so easy!
