Heather Watson, the owner of We Be Book’n With Heather, is a local distributor for Usborne Books at Home Canada, offering award-winning children’s books since January 2018.
The community of independent consultants – Heather among them – sells Usborne’s popular children’s books at parties, other events, schools and online.
“As a local distributor, I am available for events, including home parties, book fairs and fundraisers,” she says, adding she’s an educator and month with a passion for reading and sharing wonderful books.
“What started out as a way to get free books for our home has turned into a way to benefit my family and friends by building their library, too!”
Her goal is to help each customer find a book that speaks to them and their distinctly unique lives.
“I have the cutest customers around, and igniting the love of reading brings me so much joy,” says Heather, who adds each book gives her customers “a chance to escape, learn and grow.”
With offerings for all ages, it’s a fun and engaging way to develop reading skills or to simply enjoy a book.
“We have books for almost every interest, but some of our most popular books are dinosaur- or princess-themed.”
Heather’s business is a critical part of the local landscape by filling the need for a bookstore.
“Although we can get books in town, Usborne has more than 2,000 titles that cover a range of subjects, ages and languages. Each book has a lot of thought and purpose put behind it. Our French titles are chosen in France each year and are always a hit with children and parents!”
Keep an eye out for new Usborne titles each month.
