My Favorite Kind of Books - Barefoot

I want to introduce you all to a wonderful company and producer of my favorite type of books!  This company is known as Barefoot Books.

Explore. Imagine. Create. Connect. Give Back. That’s what Barefoot Books is all about. It’s exploring other cultures, our planet, ourselves. It’s making time for make-believe and letting imaginations run wild and free. Most of all, it’s about using the power of stories to nourish the creative spark in everyone and strengthen connections with family, the global community, and the earth.

What is not to love about that??!!??  I was doing a Craft Show recently and there was a Barefoot Books Booth set up very close to mine.  I bartered.  Traded a piece of my artwork for two terrific books for Red Curlz.  The very noticable difference in Barefoot books is the amazing illustrations!  They are oh so lovely and bold. 

Red Curlz is the proud owner of...

The CD/song that goes with this book is terrific!  So catchy...we sing it all the time!  And we take it to Day Care to share with her class.  They all love it.  Click on the title above and you can hear a clip of the audio. 

Another great thing about Barefoot Books website is they provide tabs for age groups, so picking out the perfect book, for the perfect kiddo is just a click away!

I think this will be my next purchase for Red Curlz...

Not only is this an amazing book to have in your collection, but Barefoot books will donate ten percent of sales from Whole World to benefit global conservation.  Beat that. 

And you can.  By Books that Give Back!  This, and many other books you purchase, will ship directly to children in schools and libraries across Africa.

This is the kind of company that I would like to support.  You should definitely go check them out for yourself!
