      I love Usborne books as a parent I read them to my children, used them as a much appreciated resource during my career as a teacher, and now continue the fun with my granddaughters. Coincidentally today is my husband Greg Osborne's birthday downunder in Perth Western Australia and we just celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary.

      This would be brilliant! We just donated 2 boxes of books to Charity and now have a lonely section on the shelf. My six kids would love 40 new ones! They just devour them faster than authors can write!
