Welcome to day six of Parker’s First Birthday Bash here on 5 Vinez Monkeys!
The perfect gift for any occasion is a book. It’s never too early to introduce a child to books and help nurture a love of reading. I read to my kids all the time. So, imagine my excitement when I found out Cindy with Usborne Books wanted to be a sponsor for Parker’s Birthday Bash!
First, here’s some information about Usborne Books:
Educational Development Corporation began its Home Business Division in March, 1989. This Division, operating as Usborne Books & More, markets the entire Usborne line of over 1,300 titles through a combination of direct sales, home shows, book fairs, fund raisers, grants and school and library sales. A network system of more than 9,000 independent sales consultants currently represent Usborne books.
We spent considerable time analyzing the vision for this company and what its purpose is. Yes, we sell the very best children’s books in the world, but we feel we have a higher purpose. We feel we are part of the overall education and literacy movement in the nation, and we feel our products can make a difference in the lives of children. Our Mission Statement clearly defines the vision of our company
- UBAM MISSION STATEMENT:
- “The future of our world depends on the education of our
children. UBAM delivers educational excellence one book
at a time. We provide economic opportunity while fostering
strong family values. We touch the lives of children for a lifetime.”
