Hi, I'm Kristin!

and it's my pleasure to be your book lady! I'm a voracious reader and a personal development junkie. I guess I'm a bit of a nerd - I do love ALL things education. I've been with Usborne Books & More for over 7 years, and it's combined so many of my favorite things: books, learning, socializing, children, teaching, making money, and being home with my kids! I love to bake, and when I have the time I also like to crochet.
I've been married to my husband for 11 years, and he's been in the Army for 16. We have lived in 5 states in 11 years and have seen multiple deployments. UBAM has seen us through 4 cross-country moves, 2 new babies, and 1 deployment. My kids are 13, 10, 8, 5, and 2! I educate them at home, and it's a bit of a beautiful chaos around here!

Why Books?

To say that I am passionate about reading aloud is an understatement. Reading to your children is not only the single most important factor for their future success, but it is also one of the easiest and most rewarding ways to bond with them. As the sayings go - "Children are made readers in the laps of their parents" and "readers are leaders." Children learn SO much when you read aloud to them. Not only tone, inflection, and that it's okay to make mistakes, but they also learn empathy and compassion as they hear hundreds of different stories about people from all walks of life and in many different situation. They also learn that reading is a fulfilling pastime, and they become lifelong learners. Contrary to popular belief, children NEVER age out of read alouds. So start early and never stop.

What can I help you with?


We have books for all ages! In the top right of my site, use the search bar to find books about dinosaurs, pirates, baking, princesses, and more! On the lefthand side we have categories for easy navigation. You'll also see a "Specials" tab - you want to check that out!


Parties are a fun & easy way to stock up on books! When I share books and read aloud tips with your friends, they get to learn more about fostering a book-loving environment in their homes. As they place their book orders, you accumulate free books of your choice.


Whether you just want to make a few bucks for gymnastics lessons or you want to save up to buy a new vehicle, being a book lady may be the ticket for you! I began just for the discount and ended up building a business and helping to pay off our debt. You can really fit this businesses around your wants and needs.
