Hey, Hey! My name is Mildred, I’m a wife, a mum, a literacy advocate and I am an Independent Consultant for Usborne Books & More! Welcome to BookWorms4Life! Thanks for stopping by! I am super excited to introduce you to the most amazing children’s books! My family fell in love with these books and I know your kiddos will love them, as well.
A little about me… My professional background is Finance and Operational Management. I was invited to a faceBOOK party a few years ago and I was intrigued in the whole concept. Attending the party I didn’t know what I was getting myself into for I had never even been to a Facebook party. It was actually pretty neat! I instantly fell in LOVE with the books AND the company! Not only could I earn FREE books and great discounts by being an Usborne Books Consultant, but you get to promote literacy and education to children of ALL ages! I decided these books were SO great that I needed a permanent discount for my family so I purchased the Starter Kit. I love that I’m building a library for my family while helping others be successful and meet their goals too!

Stories child needs to hear before they will learn to read
I promote a unique line of children’s books and I love that…I share books with kids and parents that make reading fun and learning an adventure! My mission is to get kids book hooked for a lifetime! I believe what our publisher believes – “that children should have every opportunity available to them, especially a good education. We proudly offer a product that is unsurpassed in quality, content, illustrations, and photography. Our books entice children to dive into the information and surface again eager to learn more”
On average, 100% of Kindergartners are interested in books, reading and being read to!
The interest in reading drastically lowers over time.
What changed from K – 4th?
4th Grade is when kids learn to read and parents stop reading aloud to them. Reading aloud keeps the pleasure of reading alive – also, parents can read above their level to fill their word reservoir which will eventually spill into speaking, reading, and writing vocabularies.
TIP – keep reading aloud to kids!!
