Spring / Summer Catalog 2016

Share stories. Connect families. Inspire children.


All children have extraordinary potential. Help them find it!

Our mission is to:

Share stories Connect families Inspire children Barefoot Books was founded in 1992 by two young moms working from home with the dream of creating beautiful books that celebrate diversity, spark curiosity and capture children’s imaginations. Since then, we’ve grown into a vibrant community through our Ambassador program, which empowers people just like you to start their own home-based businesses selling our award-winning books and gifts.

And YOU make this mission a reality! By buying, selling or earning free books, you make our community come alive.


What’s childhood for, if not exploring? Whether it’s about finding butterflies in the garden, a famous landmark in a far-flung city or a new favorite story character, every day shows the children in your life a door to adventure and discovery. The door just waits to be opened! Every Barefoot book is designed to open kids’ hearts and minds, to launch little people on big adventures. From our empowered Thumbelina’s daring journey (see page 37) to a young boy’s dreamlike voyage in An Island in the Sun (page 42), our books will inspire anyone whose eyes reach toward the horizon. Can’t choose? Peruse our Best of Barefoot collection (pages 4–5) or ask your Ambassador to recommend the perfect books for your classroom, spring picnic or summer road trip. So get ready for a big adventure! We couldn’t be more excited to explore the world together. Happy travels!
