I am not a "party" person. I don't do Tupperware, Pampered Chef, Candlelight or any other such things. I understand why some women enjoy them, but in an effort to keep our spending largely in the "must have" category and not end up with 13 unaccounted for Tupperware lids falling out of my cupboards, I have kept attendance at such parties to a minimum.
Therefore, it makes me extremely hypocritical to approach anyone and shamelessly plug something I am trying to sell! However, it IS Christmas time, and people DO need to buy nice gifts for kids, and I do have a really good reason for doing it...yea...right...
Actually, I have a severe case of "book envy". Any homeschooler knows of Usborne books, as they are some of the very best around with wonderful illustrations, really great content, and you can build an entire curriculum around some of them. Since beginning homeschooling last
In addition they have several really well illustrated versions of the classics for the younger set or earlier/emerging readers like we have in our family. The other kids all really enjoy those books and I'd love to get a nice selection of them as a set. They also have lower level readers for history and science subjects as well, and what I love about them is that they do not talk down to the kids, but instead present solid material at a lower vocabulary level.
There are Kid Kits with games and art activities packaged along with a book, Spanish language selections, toddler board books...you name it, they have it and I guarantee you it will be a delightfully illustrated book. Usborne books are not available in bookstores, and are only sold via catalog or shows/Eshows.
If you think you might be interested, my Eshow lasts for 10 days, closing on November 20th. You purchase through the web site and I'll get credit toward our hopeful purchase. If you know me in real life and would like to check out a couple of books before deciding to purchase or would like to view a real catalog, let me know and I can share samples I have borrowed and show you a catalog. You can click on the link below to be directed to the Usborne site where my show is being hosted:
CyndiLJ@aol.com and I'll do my best to get an answer for you. I am not becoming a consultant or anything, so don't expect to have future sales pitches directed your way...I promise! However, since I have invited you into our virtual home for the past 4 years, I might as well invite you to my virtual book party! HAHAHAHA!!!! Thanks a bunch everyone!
