Thank you for stopping by Get Busy And Read! My name is Laura and I am an Independent Consultant with Usborne Books & More. Based just outside of Kansas City, Missouri, I am over the moon excited to introduce to you what I think are the most amazing children’s books in the world! My family immediately fell in love with these books and I know your kiddos will love them too. I would be delighted to help you build a library of quality books for your home! I love to help get books into the hands of children!!!
A little about me…I have lived my entire life in Missouri. I love it! I teach high school math in a small town not far from where I was raised. I grew up around a lot of teachers, so it was no surprise to my family when I chose this profession. I was invited to an Usborne Books & More faceBOOK party shortly after my first daughter was born and was drawn in by the whole concept. I had never heard of Usborne books before that party. (I was missing out on something wonderful!) I absolutely loved every book I received in my first order and immediately knew I needed more.
Not long after that, I decided to take a leap of faith and join this amazing company. I love their mission (to promote literacy), their history (they’ve been going strong since 1989), their financial stability (EDC, their parent company, is a publicly traded company, with an amazing sales record), and the opportunity to run my small business however I see fit.
In addition to my book business and teaching, I also keep the books for my husband’s small electrical company. I LOVE being a mommy to two beautiful daughters – Elizabeth Grace (3 1/2) and Kathryn (1 1/2). My husband, Jacob, and I love spending time outdoors. We love camping, hiking, exploring, and traveling with our small family.
