Usborne Books & More Back to School Sale

For a limited time you can save up to 30% on various Usborne Books and More titles. Many titles included in this sale are award winners, many winning multiple awards.

In a previous post I mentioned Anna Hibsicus, there are four books in this series about a young girl growing up in Africa with her entire family. I love the names of her twin cousins, Double and Trouble. This book has been awarded multiple awards and receives rave reviews. The entire set normally sells for $19.99, but for a limited time you can get all four books for $16.76, for ages 5-9. For those who do not homeschool you may be interested to know that these books are AR titles. I also want to mention that if you bought the set at the regular you would save $7.20, so this is a real bargain.

Another title on the list is Hannah's Winter which takes place in Japan. This book is geared towards ages 9-14, because the story is about a 12 year old girl who travels to Japan with writer mother conducting some research, I think the girls would enjoy it more. Hannah hangs out with a family while her mom works, she befriends the daughter and they become entangled in a mystery. This title will aid in educating young readers about the language, food, beliefs and customs of Japanese people. This book does contain supernatural elements. This library bound book usually sells for $15.99, but for a limited time you can purchase this title for $11.19.

The last item I want to mention is not on the Back to School Sale list, The Asia Boxed Set. This set includes four titles along with a postcard containing details about each country. This set usually sells for $24.99, but for a limited time you can get it for $14.99. I want to say that one of these titles, Kali and the Rat Snake (ages 5-9), is a hard back book and by it self would cost $15.95. Other titles included in the set are, While We Were Out (ages 4-6), The Story of Cherry the Pig (ages 4-6) and Singing Shijimi Clams (only available with this set.) If you purchased each one of these titles separately it would cost you approximately $63.80.
