sq300-barb-avatar-avila-innWelcome to the newly designed page for Barb’s People Builders. I have closed my online store for health reasons.   I have shifted my focus from direct selling to writing, affiliate selling, and having more time to read.

When I  started my business, my goal was to offer products to build people up — physically, mentally, and spiritually. That is still my focus. The difference now is that instead of shipping the products myself, I will recommend books and other products I believe in and refer you to the the companies I’m affiliated with the hope you will make your purchases from my links. The order processing and shipping was taking my energy from what I enjoy most — helping people find the books they will most enjoy in their families and in their teaching.

I will be keeping the best of book review content on this redesigned site, but it will take a bit of time to get it in place. I’m rewriting most of it. I intend to recommend books and teaching materials I have personally found exciting, and I will include affiliate links to reliable sites I have dealt with as both a buyer and a dealer. I have become an affiliate of one of my favorite suppliers of children’s book and educational resources, Dover Publications. I have also put a search form for Amazon in the side bar if you prefer to deal with them. Their prices on Dover products do not always beat Dover’s and Dover’s site can be a lot more fun to browse for educational coloring books, historical models and paper dolls of all kinds, as well as inexpensive children’s classics. I also have their link in my side bar.

I hope you will help support the expenses of this page by using the affiliate search boxes and text links provided. I do get a small commission if you decide to buy from any of my third-party links.

Besides children’s books, I will be reviewing and recommending some of my favorite books on cooking, gardening, and other subjects that interest me, and you will occasionally see some images from Zazzle, my favorite print on demand site, to liven things up and add a touch  of humor or wisdom. Most of the designs I post will come on  many products that you can see if you click the product I show you. This is one of my favorites.
