Usborne Books & More

About Us …

Usborne Books & More is a division of Educational Development Corporation (EDC), a well-established company that has twice been recognized as one of The Best Small Companies in America and three times by Fortune Magazine as one of America’s 100 Fastest Growing Small Companies. On March 1, 1989, the direct selling division was created to concentrate exclusively on selling Usborne books. In late 2008, EDC acquired Kane Miller Publishing, an internationally known publisher of children’s books with over 20 years in the industry. Today. Usborne Books & More distributes books through thousands of independent consultants who sell directly to the consumer. You can sell via a home party, online party, direct sales, book fairs, and web sites where you can shop online.

And you might wonder… why is it hard to find our books on Amazon? When I do find them, prices don’t match MSRP (meaning many are higher!) or when I do find a good deal on a book, I receive a used book or a non-US published book! Why?

Did you know Usborne stopped distributing via Amazon and other wholesales in 2009? Read more about our story:
