A

’s world

Do you have a special childhood memory that fills you with joy? Maybe it’s giggling with your best friend, playing with a beloved pet or curling up with a favorite book on a long summer night. Whatever it is, that cherished moment brings you back to when your world was more playful, more imaginative, more full of wonder. Most of us feel a responsibility to protect this same joy and innocence in our children’s lives. We also want to raise them as caring, confident young members of the global community. That’s why for 25 years, we’ve created books for children that celebrate diversity and ignite curiosity about our colorful world. From a silly picture book that invites readers to help a young boy find his lost dog (see page 3) to a joyful baby book featuring a family with two dads (see page 15), our books will spark creative play and prompt meaningful conversations with the children in your life.

I grew up in a rural community where differences were stark and obvious. But my children, thanks to Barefoot, don’t see the same boundaries or differences I grew up with. I truly believe these books are improving the future for all children by inspiring them to accept and value everyone. “This is what I want to do, what I love to do, and what I would do even if I weren’t being paid.
