Usborne Reading Sets...

Here is a wonderful video of Peter Usborne explaining why (and how) out Very First Reading Set works.

The Very First Reading Set contains 15 easy reader books that get your child comfortable with reading on their own.  They start out reading with you, and by the end have gone through every sound they need to read all by themselves!  The set is $69.99, and certainly worth the investment to get your son or daughter excited about reading!

Usborne also just recently released a set that runs along side our Reading Program, called First Reading Box Set.  It contains 10 books and costs $59.99.

National Card Reading Day!

Today is National Card Reading Day!  Don't you just love these random "holidays."  Lol!  I wanted to take this opportunity to let you know that Usborne doesn't just have books.  We have games, teaching manipulatives and even some greeting cards!
20 Thank You Cards to Color
These are adorable "Thank You" cards that your kids (or you, I won't judge!) can color!  So fun!  They come with envelopes as well.  They really are pretty stinkin' cute!  
A look at a few of them.
We have them in Birthday Cards too...
20 Birthday Cards to Color
A look at a few of these!

And, of course, our Cards for a Cause fundraiser involves two wonderful sets of Greeting Cards in keepsake boxes!  $30 cards for $30!  I am, in fact, currently doing a fundraiser myself, so if you're interested (and local!), let me know!  We'd appreciate your support!

The greeting cards are high-quality, colorful, hand-crafted and so much fun!  We have two versions you can choose from (or get one of each!).
Specifically for Kids!

Each box of cards is $30, contains 30 cards (yes, making them only $1 each - but these are no typical dollar store cards!) and has a nice keepsake box as well!  These are so great to have on hand for those emergency "Thank you" or "Happy Anniversary!" needs.  You know you have 'em!  You'll be covered!
So cute!
If you are interested in learning more about our Cards for a Cause fundraising for your needs, email me at HeyJadeBooks[at]gmail and I can get your group started right away!

Illustrated Stories from Shakespeare

The Illustrated Stories from Shakespeare is now available for purchase!  I saw this one in the 'coming soon' news a while back, and was so excited, and it's finally available!  This lovely collection features Twelfth Night, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Hamlet, Macbeth, Romeo and Juliet, and The Tempest.  Now, these are obviously not going to be the original plays, but retold in an easy-to-read fashion with lots of pictures... just perfect for your reluctant readers or die-hard Shakespeare enthusiasts.  LOVE IT!
