Company Profile


Educational Development Corporation (“EDUC”), was incorporated in 1965 to develop curriculum materials for schools. In 1978 the Publishing Division was created to distribute Usborne children's books, and the Home Business Division was started in 1989. Today, ED is focused on the distribution of books for children. EDC is the United States trade publisher and sole American distributor of the UK-based Usborne Books and owns Kane Miller Books, specializing in children’s literature from around the world. EDC’s current catalog contains over 1,800 titles, with new additions semi-annually. Both Usbone and Kane Miller products are sold via 5,000 retail outlets and by over 23,000 direct sales consultants nationally. The Company is headquartered in Tulsa, Oklahoma. 

Usborne Publishing Limited produces award winning books that are of excellent quality and cover the ages of preschool to adult. The subject matter includes a wide range such as history, languages, natural science, crafts, parent guides, puzzles and beginning readers. These subjects along with many other subjects make our product line one of the most complete in the industry. The Company presently offers over 2000 different titles in its product line and has recently added a line of fiction titles. 

The Company operates two principal divisions: Home Business Division and Publishing Division. The Home Business Division distributes books through independent consultants who hold book showings in individual homes, and through book fairs, direct sales and Internet sales. The Home Business Division also distributes these titles to school and public libraries. The Publishing Division markets books to book stores, toy stores, specialty stores and other retail outlets.
