July is a fantastic month with Usborne Books & More, as it's their annual New Titles month, in conjunction with the best deal of the year for home-shows: Double Free! I have been able to preview a lot of the new titles and I would just like to say they keep getting better. The book cover at the top of the post, Jonathan James and the Whatif Monster, by Michelle Nelson-Schmidt, is my favorite new title from Kane Miller. It's a paperpack story that is worth every penny of it's $6.99 price tag, for the message it entails. It's a story about a little boy who worries "What if?" throughout his day and the ending will get a big smile from adults and children alike. A lovely story for any child encountering a new situation, this book will give them the boost of confidence to try new things.
Hostess specials are incredible this month, as once a year (and you never know when it will happen!) Usborne allows hostess to receive DOUBLE FREE the amount of books for having a home show. This is the best time to have a home show as it allows you to stock up your children's library, or get all the kiddos Christmas gifts early this year, by just opening your home for an hour or two with your friends. Here is a link to the PDF file that shows just how good of a deal this is: With an average show, you could have $140 in FREE Usborne & Kane Miller titles. It's a steal, and if you're local and need more information, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
Please keep in mind I have room for ONE more home show this month as my dates booked pretty quickly, email me soon if you want to have one in July!
If you've ever wanted a great insiders discount to Usborne & Kane Miller books, but need more information, July is also a great month for joining the team. There is an option between 2 kits to buy (one large, one small, priced respectively), and this month, you can join for only $10 down. Details here. It's a great way to earn a bit of income on the side while gaining an awesome amount & quality of literature and non-fiction for your household. I have loved every book I've gotten (free, really discounted, OR full price!) and I can say it easily pays for itself if you're ready to go. Again, for any other questions feel free to email me.
Lastly, let's not forget the Customer Specials that come out every month! With every $40 spent, you have the option to choose up to 3 of the customer specials, which are discounted about 60% off the retail price. This is a great way to stock up the birthday bin, get inexpensive but quality, useful teacher gifts for the next school year, Christmas gifts in advance, or a home school project book. Here is the flyer listing all of the customer specials, but some of my personal favorites are Math Puzzles (a wipe-clean packet of cards), The Zoo by Suzy Lee, and the board game Picture Word Lotto (similar to Bingo).
