Common Core State Standards


Usborne Books & More provides K-12 supplemental materials to support educators as they implement these new Common Core State Standards (CCSS).    We’ve made the selection process easy- all Usborne and Kane Miller titles are aligned with the standards.

As an endorsing partner of CCSS, Usborne Books & More will help schools and families choose books to help educate their children, both within the school setting and at home.  Certain topics mandated by these standards include myths, stories from around the world, and informational text.
