While in college Desiree Volunteered at Holy Savior Catholic Academy in Wichita Kansas for a few months, an opening became available for an assistant Pre school Teacher there and was offered the position.

A few years later Desiree moved to Toms River New Jersey, where she found work as an

assistant teacher at Grace and Peace Academy. Her love for children continued to grow and she found that she wanted to not only help children succeed in school, but also she wanted to have her own business while doing it. Her entrepreneurial spirit pushed her to find the business opportunity of her dreams. She started working for Usborne Books & More at the start of 2012 and enjoys the opportunity to build her very own business while promoting literacy both nationally and internationally.

In 1978, the EDC acquired the rights to publish children’s from the Usborne Publishing Company in England. EDC began distributing Usborne Books through the Publishing Division in 1978.

“The remarkable success of Usborne Books derives from the simple idea that it is possible, without any sacrifice of quality, to produce non-fiction books as interesting and entertaining as television, magazines and comics-media that most children instinctively prefer”. The company competes with those “friendly” media in a number of ways many of them unique to Usborne Publishing.

“The growth in sales of Usborne books has remarkably frown in the past few years, we believe, by the rapidly increasing concern among parents to support the education of their children by providing stimulating and interesting books at home”.
