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.

“I feel I am part of essential work to make sure that ALL children, ALL families see themselves in the books they read!” — Dena Davis, Ambassador since 2007


Today more than ever, children need diverse, inclusive and inspiring books. This is what we’re all about. From the very beginning, our books have opened windows to other cultures and perspectives, while also providing children of all backgrounds and abilities with a much-needed mirror of their own experiences. That’s why we are so excited for you to share The Barefoot Book of Children (see page 3) with the children in your life. There couldn’t be a better time to introduce this groundbreaking resource for starting important conversations. Painted by one of our favorite illustrators and written by our very own editors, The Barefoot Book of Children invites every child to step inside a story — and to tell their own. We all want to raise the next generation to become global citizens who see the connections between all people, but who are also sensitive to the differences that make us unique. We invite you to browse these pages and discover all the ways in which you can join our movement to open hearts and minds through the power of stories. Happy reading!

Ambassador Spotlight Daphne Fowler uses her Ambassador business to share her passion for cross-cultural learning:

Did you know? The book world is buzzing!

Parents and professionals across industries and continents have raised their voices to call for stories that represent ALL children.

“Stories are one of the very best ways to learn from one another, and Barefoot’s mission to use stories to teach children about the world and caring for the earth perfectly aligns with my values as a parent. This is what drives my business: a desire for children to know our world as one that is good and beautiful. My hope is that by being raised to appreciate other cultures, children become compelled to live lives of compassion and consideration for others” — Daphne Fowler, Ambassador since 2015

The Power of Stories “The inclusion of all children”

“Your child is represented here!” “I found Wonderful Words at a time when my preemie son was through infancy but far behind typical development, wearing leg braces and a DOC band, and entirely non-verbal. This book was useful during his speech and developmental therapy sessions, but we also loved it because it seamlessly and naturally depicted children who looked like my son. You need not hunt far and wide for the ‘special story about the different kid’ to find characters your children can easily relate to; your child is represented here!” — Cat Serna-Horn, Ambassador since 2015

“The Animal Boogie was the first Barefoot singalong I discovered. I loved the colorful illustrations and the inclusion of all children! When my students begged me week after week to sing and dance to the song, I realized I’d discovered something really magical. I went on to purchase more singalongs and was shocked how each one captivated all my students! That is when I decided I had to become an Ambassador so I could share these beautiful books with the students and teachers at all of the schools we work with” — Jamaica Stevens, Ambassador since 2007

A book like a “comfort blanket”

One day, Ambassador Rebekah Gienapp received a photo of a beaten-up copy of I Took the Moon for a Walk from her customer Shelly Campbell, with this story:

“A few months ago, my son Duncan was diagnosed with DUCT DETAIL S. SEE PAGE 46 FOR PRO autism, global developmental delay and language disorder. In challenging times, this much-loved book has become his ‘comfort blanket.’ It’s saved us from many a meltdown. I’ve tried to replace it with a newer copy, but he’s not having it!’” — Shelly Campbell, customer of Rebekah Gienapp, Ambassador since 2013 6

Barefoot Books | Autumn / Winter 2016 – 2017

“When I first read The Boy Who Grew Flowers, I cried and cried. As a new mom to a little guy diagnosed with Cornelia deLange Syndrome, I was so worried that people would always see his disability, his differences first. My wish for Benjamin is that he meets people like Angelina Quiz who accept him and love him for who he is” — Dena Davis, Ambassador since 2007

“The Atlas is a powerful tool in my English as a New Language classroom. We frequently discuss the countries the children come from, the geography of the places they’ve lived, and the ways in which climate and geography affect daily life and culture. Giving children the opportunity to see themselves in literature both honors their cultural heritage and helps to affirm their identities.

Ambassador Spotlight

Rainforest Conservation

This April, our Ambassador community rallied around our One Book, One Tree campaign to plant a total of 26,917 trees around the globe!

We’re Roaming in the Rainforest

Inspired by our founders’ global mission, Barefoot Ambassador Maceo Cabrera Estévez was thrilled to be a part of our campaign to plant one tree for every book sold. As a homeschooling mom and former bookseller, she saw the initiative as an opportunity to change lives around the world: “As a mom who wants her children to be global citizens, I’m so proud of Barefoot Books for this campaign. I was able to impact a community that I never would’ve thought I could touch in a way that will last for generations to come” — Maceo Cabrera Estévez Ambassador since 2014 Do you want to make a big impact on children’s lives everyday, as founders Nancy and Tessa have done for 20+ years?

“After I chose to leave my full-time psychology work to stay home with my special-needs son, I found myself longing to make an impact outside the home again. My Barefoot business allows me to continue to promote empathy and multicultural awareness without ever missing my son’s life events. My long-term goal is to use all of my profits to help fund our future adoption. Given my quick success and ever-growing passion for my business, I look forward to growing our family soon!” — Cat Serna-Horn, Ambassador since 2015
