Once upon a time, Educational Development Corporation (EDC) began with a focus on educational material. However, it didn’t take us long to discover our true passion: books that children actually like to read! The vision became apparent, and we realized that together we could change the world one book at a time.

Over time, we have become internationally recognized as a force to be reckoned with in children’s publishing. Usborne and Kane Miller books positively impact the way children and families read, learn, and grow.

While selling children’s books is our only line of business, we sell them through two business segments. Usborne Books & More (aka UBAM) is our home business division that sells D2C (direct to consumer). Books are sold nationwide through Independent Consultants who share books with their customers in various ways, including parties, on social media, at book fairs, in schools and public libraries, and more.


Our retail division markets books to bookstores (including major national chains), toy stores, specialty stores, museums, and other retail outlets throughout the country.

We are still writing our story, and we want YOU to be a part of it. Are you ready to join our literacy mission?


Our mission statement drives our business -
“The future of our world depends on the education of our children. We deliver educational excellence one book at a time. We provide economic opportunity while fostering strong family values. We touch the lives of children for a lifetime.”



The combination of Usborne and Kane Miller books enables EDC to offer one of the most creative and original book lines in the United States. See More
