Books on Board

Sue Barker, Independent Usborne Organiser

I am always here to help

Welcome to Sue Barker's Books

I have 4 grown up children and 5 grandsons and I run my bookselling business along side spending time with them and traveling around the country on my narrow boat. I enjoy working locally, in Stroud, attending fairs and markets, toddler groups and working in schools and pre-schools but this website allows me to work where ever I happen to be! 

But like many, I am currently working at home and we have been working throughout this crisis to bring books, games and activities into your homes to entertain and educate,

We are always here to help. 

Our on line shop is daunting, so many to choose from, so

 If you are looking for the right Usborne book for your child you can 

  • contact me to ask questions and get advise. My specialism is Early Year’s but I have an extensive knowledge of our huge catalogue. 
  • get some friends together on social media/internet meets and I can set up a Virtual Pop Up Book Shop to help you all and there’s free gifts and discounts for in it for you

Follow me on FaceBook

  • I am sharing new books and special offers 
  • Sharing books and special offers from my stock for local delivery or posting.
  • There's information and links to the Usborne Publishing, ‘Play and Learn’  and Quicklinks, activities for fun and leaning 

Would you like to sell Usborne books too? My team is recruiting now.  There are no sales targets, it will cost £48 to get started and you can work the hours to suit you. This months starter kit looks amazing 

We help give thousands of pounds worth of books to schools and pre-schools for free every year! Find out how here,  and lets explore creative ways to continue to help schools and families in the current situation. 

And maybe soon you can invite me to a local group or community event.
