When the opportunity to nourish, maintain, and grow Big Books, By George! presented itself to Ben and Jackie, they didn’t have to think twice. It had always been a dream of theirs to operate a business that created meaningful change within its community.
They purchased the company in 2020 after being operated by the original owners and creators of the educational content found within the by George! products for over 20 years. They hope to carry on the same passion for learning and educational growth that the original husband and wife duo had when they started Big Books, By George!
Ben, a former elementary school teacher, and Jackie, a board-certified music therapist, live in Houston and have 5 children of their own, some of them having participated in Dual Language classrooms in Houston. They understand the challenges school districts face within the bilingual community, but more importantly they recognize its potential to effect children in a positive way.
We are a proudly woman-owned small business. We hope you see the potential these products carry within them for educators and classrooms across Texas and beyond. Please feel free to contact us for any of your needs!
