the next generation

Our kids sector is one of the most important!

 We are passionate about educating and promoting wellbeing in children from an early age. We use fun interactive and engaging tools, games and activities in this section to get them excited and keen to live healthy and well lives.

We also give them cookery demos, live chats, speakers, and fitness classes to get involved in.

I joined Usborne in September 2012 when my daughters were just 3 and 1, now, 9 years later and they have had as much pleasure from my job as I have! As a part time teacher, working in partnership with Usborne is my release from the pressures of work and I love to lose myself in the wonderful titles that are released each month; whether it’s a new fiction title, some mindful colouring or getting hands on in the kitchen with our creative baking and crafting books.

I support a team of like minded people to share the love of reading, and regularly visit schools to support them with recommended reads, sparking their pupils’ curiosity and bringing books to life with free events to inspire future generations of readers and fill their bookshelves for free.
