Usborne Books & More has a wonderful selection of "Phonics Readers." These books are aimed at some of our earliest readers, and each title features a story with rhyming text and phonic repetition designed to help develop essential language and early reading skills. Watch the video below for a "tour" of one of these titles, "Kangaroo at the Zoo."
Usborne has about 20 different titles in this series, each one of which contains a fun story and cute illustrations. As you can see in the video, each book is a sturdy paperback that will hold up well to little hands, and it contains guidance notes for parents at the back. A single copy of one of our Phonics Readers is $6.99, and all of them can be found by clicking this link.
However, the title of this blog post is "3 Great Ways to Save Money on Books For Your Early Reader." So how can you do that?
Option One: Purchase a "Combined Volume." Cow Takes a Bow and Other Tales and Raccoon on the Moon and Other Tales are our two combined volumes. Each of these two books contains six different stories from the Phonics Readers, as well as a set of guidance notes at the back. Each of these hardback combined volumes can be purchased for only $14.99!
Option Two: Check out Ted and Friends! This hardback book is also a combined volume, but this one contains a total of 12 titles from the Phonics Readers series. "Ted and Friends" also has the added bonus of a listen-along CD. The book and CD together can be purchased for only $19.99!
Option Three: Order the Phonics Box Set. While the previous options are a great way to get a good selection of stories at a great price, there really is something to be said for having the smaller, individual Phonics Reader books. They're easy for kids to handle, and they can more easily find the specific story that they're looking for (instead of trying to flip through a larger book to find where a particular story starts). This box set contains an individual copy of all 20 Phonics Readers books (and, of course, a sturdy box in which to keep them organized!) for only $69.99. That's a 50% savings over buying each title separately!
Of course, there is a bonus 4th way to save money on these books; host an Usborne Books & More party on Facebook for your friends and family! As a party host(ess), your main job is to invite people and to interact with the posts on the party event page. Your consultant does most of the work! The more books your party guests purchase, the more you can earn in free and/or discounted books. For more information or to book a party, just click this link and fill out the form!
