Selling Usborne books in schools opens up a huge earning opportunity for Organisers. From school book fairs, themed events and to sponsored reads, there are lots of different events that you can hold in schools to help them get more Usborne books without taking up their precious time and budget.
Watch Group Leader, Julie Williams, talk about the benefits for schools and the enjoyment she gets from working with schools.
Schools greatly appreciate the service that an Usborne Organiser provides. Usually teachers have to organise book events themselves, but as an Usborne Organiser, you arrange everything - setting up the stall, recommending titles, taking the payments and delivering the books - and you can tailor your service to meet each school’s needs.
Most importantly you can offer them free books and discounts depending on the total sales at their event.
Here are some of the events you can hold in schools to sell books and help schools fundraise to buy new books:
Usborne sponsored listening and reading events are easy way for schools to raise funds for books for their library. Ready, Steady...Listen! is for younger children who are not quite ready to read alone and Ready, Steady...Read! is for children of reading age. Whether it's in school time, at home, during the school holidays or in a 24 hour race, children of all ages can take part and ask family members and friends to sponsor them.
These are easy-to-administer initiatives allow schools to benefit from books for all to share and enjoy, whilst encouraging listening and reading of books and stories at home and school. These are perfect events for schools that want an exciting Usborne event, without holding a book fair.
You'll find Ready, Steady…Listen! and Ready Steady…Read! downloadable packs with everything the school needs to run one of these events in the Tools & Downloads library.
You can offer the school book fair service to every school and they can benefit from great discounts and special offers without having to lift a finger.
You can also tailor the whole event to suit your school’s timetable, curriculum and budget:

"Ready, Steady… Read! is one of the easiest reading events we have held and one of the most profitable! All the hard work was done by our local Usborne representative. I would recommend it to any busy teacher or Literacy Co-ordinator."Mrs Sarah Watson, Deputy Headteacher of Briary Primary School
