Sharing stories Connecting families Inspiring children We’ve come a long way since we started as a small home-based business in 1992. Back then, we wanted to create beautiful and enduring books for children that open their hearts and minds to our wonderfully diverse world. Now, a quarter of a century later, our mission hasn’t changed. And, as we celebrate Barefoot’s 25th anniversary, it is so rewarding to be included on the Forbes 2017 list of 25 Best Small Companies in America and to have “defied conventional wisdom with a publishing brand that parents and grandparents recognize, trust, and buy.” I am proud to work with an extraordinary team to create outstanding children’s stories and to be part of a passionate Barefoot family who helps us share them. Most of all, I am proud to have put more than 20 million books into the hands of children. I can’t wait to see what the next 25 Barefoot years will bring! Thank you for living Barefoot and sharing your stories. Nancy Traversy CEO & Co-Founder

What do the children in your life see in the books they read? From The Animal Boogie in our early days to Baby’s First Words this year, our books have always validated a wide range of children by accurately and sensitively depicting characters who look and live like them. For 25 years, we’ve dedicated ourselves to ensuring that all children feel “seen” when they read our books. We’re also committed to commissioning exceptional creators, like the award-winning Mexican-American illustrator Yuyi Morales, whose authentic voices and visions touch the hearts of children everywhere. And, finally, we are dedicated to creating change in the children’s book publishing industry as a whole, with initiatives like our Diversity in Publishing Editorial Internship, designed to encourage people of color to pursue careers in the field.

Celebrating Language

From our early days as a publisher, we’ve believed that growing up multilingual is a key component of “living Barefoot.” Our books celebrate not only the best of the English language, but also of French and Spanish! “Barefoot Books’s bilingual and French titles have captivating illustrations that make lessons more memorable for everyone. My customers who buy the bilingual books are primarily parents trying to learn French with their children who are in French school programs. These books are a perfect way to bring learning from the classroom into the home” — Jessica Beausoleil, Barefoot Ambassador
