The Penina's Reading Corner Experience

About Me

My name is Penina Tofete. I believe that books make the world go round, I am a disney FANatic and I speak Harry Potter fluently. I am a the mother of Makaʻena & Sophia and my kāne is Kainoa Hoʻopiʻi. I am born and raised on the West side of Oʻahu in Hawaiʻi.

Penina's Reading Corner is the name of my shop for Usborne Books & More. I am super passionate about literacy, giving back to my lāhui, kaiāulu and keiki.

I have been with Usborne for over a year and it all started with a BOOK PARTY! and one of my best friends, Nalei Halemano.

Usborne & Kane Miller Books

Usborne and Kane Miller books are the most exciting, engaging, and educational books on the market today. They are high-quality, innovative, lavishly-illustrated, and best of all, they are the books kids love to read. Choose from over 1,800 bright, colorful, and fun titles covering a wide variety of subjects.

More than 30 years ago, Peter Usborne pioneered a new generation of books that prove that it is possible to create books that compete with the vast media that attracts children today. From activity books, to neat fiction series, to internet-linked science and history encyclopedias, Usborne does books better.
