We are the exclusive United States trade co-publisher of the line of educational children's books produced in the United Kingdom by Usborne Publishing Limited ("Usborne").
We also own Kane Miller Book Publishers; award-winning publishers of international children's books. We were incorporated on August 23, 1965, in the State of Delaware. Our fiscal
years end on February 28 (29).
Our Company motto is "The future of our world depends on the education of our children. EDC delivers 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."
While selling children's books is our only line of business, we sell them through two business segments, which we sometimes refer to as "divisions":
Home Business Division ("Usborne Books & More" or "UBAM") - This division distributes books nationwide through independent consultants, who hold book showings in individual homes,
through social media, book fairs with school and public libraries, direct sales, and internet sales.
Publishing Division ("EDC Publishing") - This division markets books to bookstores (including major national chains), toy stores, specialty stores, museums and other retail outlets
throughout the country.
As the exlusive United States trade co-publisher of the Usborne line of books, we offer over 2,000 different titles. Many of these titles are interactive in nature, including our
Touchy-Feely board books, activity and flashcards, adventure and search books, art books, sticker books and foreign language books. We also have a growing number of titles printed by our
Kane Miller Book Publishers. Most of our Kane Miller titles wer originally published in other countries, in their native languages, and we have purchased the exclusive rights to publish
the titles in North America.
