Anne from Kinderbooks is my go-to children’s literature consultant. Yes, I do call her that over "book seller” because she truly has the most carefully curated selection of children’s books, and I can always rely on her to replenish my classroom’s shelves with quality literature. Kinderbooks only offers books with writing and art that enriches early childhood language and literature experiences, and I love that Anne carries culturally and politically relevant books. From the Rebel Girls series to Indigenous and First Nations selections, I can always count on Kinderbooks for amazing resources and support for my preschool classroom, or my children’s yoga classes. Kinderbooks is less about the books than it is about Anne. SHE IS WONDERFUL! (She even drove 45mins to hand deliver one of my orders!) Now how many children’s book stores will do that for their customers?? :)
Working with Anne to plan and implement a fundraising initiative for our Me to We Team was nothing short of fantastic! She met with the leadership students to share ideas, talk about the various water bottle products and get them involved. Our goal was to promote reconciliation awareness through our sales event and the First Nations Art on the products. The water bottle sales exceeded our expectations and the money raised was used to promote future leadership events in our school. Thank you Anne, for being such a wonderful part of this process with us, your kind and caring nature really helped in the success of our event. We look forward to working with you again next year.

Anne Uebbing is professional, flexible, organized.... a pleasure to work with. The product is not only beautiful the quality is superb. Anne supported our many functions throughout the year by showing up with product on hand. She took orders and they were delivered in an arranged delivery schedule that worked for our schedule. Our customers were pleased and we painlessly raised funds for our Dry Grad event. I would highly recommend Anne for any event you are considering.

With her passion for rich and heartfelt stories, Anne carefully selects the diverse collection of titles carried by Kinder Books. As an instructor, I have come to rely on Anne’s expertise for choosing children’s literature to enrich my classes in the Early Childhood Care and Education department at Capilano University. In her passionate, knowledgeable, and personable manner Anne recommends beautiful stories for every occasion that celebrate diversity, nurture the heart, and inspire the imagination. Kinder Books is an invaluable resource to our community.

Anne has been fabulous to work with over the last year! She is so friendly, extremely organised, always willing to help in all contexts, and the water bottles are of great quality. They are the new trend, and a trend that will last!
Tara-Lynn OReilly, Teacher Burnaby Mountain Secondary
Anne ran a book sale fundraiser at Ecole Moody Middle School of the Arts this June. Her selection of books for middle school readers was both thoughtful and unique. Many students showed interest in both the books and the aboriginal art pieces (water bottles, magnets, bookmarks etc) that she brought as part of her collection. We would love to have Anne and Kinder Books back to do another event!

I had the great pleasure of working with Anne this year while she assisted our Secondary School Dry Grad Committee with our fundraising efforts. Anne quickly established a reputation of being highly motivated and responsive to our fundraising needs. She actively sought opportunities to assist us in having a very successful fundraiser. Anne was exceptionally organized and kept us on task. When special circumstances arose that required immediate attention, Anne was very willing to respond, including delivering products at the last minute. I have no hesitation in recommending Anne Uebbing and KinderBooks as a fundraising partner.

I am book worm mother who has introduced my daughter to early reading and have been reading to her since she was an infant. My daughter is a wonderful two and half year old now and we have always been happy enjoying all the wonderful books from this special independent children's travel bookstore, Kinder Books.
Anne has a great passion seeking a wide variety of unique books about earth, nature, animals, first nations, culture, creativity, magic and wonder. She knows all her books and loves to provide knowledgeable recommendations to support any child's need for a fun reading, exciting learning and nurturing the little minds in exploring the world of children's books.
