What is an Independent Usborne Organiser

As a passionate community of self-employed booksellers, Independent Usborne Organisers are dedicated to putting the customer first.

By listening to the needs of teachers, parents and young readers, they ensure that every Usborne book finds its forever home. 

You can buy online from your local Organiser and receive expert advice on the right books for your young readers. Alternatively, let your Independent Usborne Organiser bring the books (and that expert advice) to you.

You can attend or even host your own Usborne events - in your school, local community group or even your own home. Your Organiser will do all of the work and ensure you have lots of fun with your friends.

Plus, they can offer you exclusive discounts and free books that can’t be found anywhere else.

This month’s book recommendations from Jenny Tyler, Publishing Director at Usborne

Looking after our planet

"It's never too early to start talking to children about taking care of our incredible planet. These books are great to share: they'll answer some questions but, more importantly, get families thinking and talking about what they can do to help."
