Over 25 years ago, we started a small home-based business, planting the seed of an idea. We wanted to create beautiful, enduring books that celebrate diversity, spark curiosity and capture children’s imaginations. Since then, that seed has grown into a vibrant community of mission-driven people who are committed to opening children’s hearts and minds through the power of stories. Together, we are proud to share books and gifts that foster mindfulness and critical thinking, and encourage children to strive to make a difference. From the timely tale of an imaginative boy who stands up for what he believes in (page 3), to the story of an aspiring engineer with bold dreams of flying (page 17), our collection will show children that even the littlest ideas can blossom into something big.

I hope you enjoy browsing our collection, and that you, too, will be inspired to help cultivate a child’s imagination this season! With warm wishes, Nancy Traversy CEO & Co-Founder

Do you believe that

inspiring children can change the world? Meet other members of our vibrant Barefoot community who are already making an impact!

“Putumayo is pleased to be collaborating with Barefoot Books. We share a strong interest in helping children learn about the world through music and colorfully illustrated books. Like Barefoot, we’re trying to present the more positive side of cultures that are so often viewed in a negative way” — Dan Storper, Founder & CEO, Putumayo World Music

“I am proud to share Barefoot books with the kids in my library. Barefoot books embrace the world we live in, with all of its beautiful diversity, and every page of every book encourages empathy, compassion and understanding. What wonderful messages to send to our kids!” — Rosemary Kiladitis, librarian and parent

“I love using Barefoot books, both in my classroom and with my two children, because they are stories with heart, conscience, and purpose. They spark rich classroom discussions about important social justice topics, and conversation is a great starting point for growth and change. Also, as someone who teaches English learners, many who are immigrants or refugees, I appreciate that ALL children and families are represented...what a wonderful way to show children they are valued” — Emily Golightly, ESL Teacher and President of the Crystal Coast Reading Council

“Through our work with over 150 schools we use Barefoot books for our dance, music and yoga programs. We love the diversity and inclusion of all children, the large variety of art styles and mediums and the rich language environment it helps us create in our classes! Not only do our students love the books but other educators also are impressed with the quality. We are proud as a company to represent Barefoot Books and grateful for their contributions to Early Childhood Education!” — Jamaica Stevens, Founder & CEO, JAMaROO Kids and Barefoot Books Ambassador since 2007


“Our network of nonprofits work to provide low-income families with skills and tools to ensure children achieve their greatest potential. We so appreciate working together with Barefoot to inspire these young children and families with their beautiful and diverse collection of books!” — Pamela S. Williams, Parent-Child Home Program State Program Director (Washington)

“I am a book lover who has worn many hats: teacher, bookseller, parent, book reviewer and librarian. Barefoot Books has always been an essential part of my shelf because it is the industry leader in publishing books that reflect and celebrate diversity. With Barefoot books, children are introduced to the vibrant and rich world with bold colors and master storytellers” — Jesica Sweedler DeHart, influencer @wanderingbookseller and asst. librarian @neillpubliclibrary

The Book Tree

Written by Paul Czajak Illustrated by Rashin Kheiriyeh

When young Arlo accidentally drops a book on the Mayor’s head, the Mayor decides books are dangerous and destroys all the books in town! But thanks to Arlo’s imagination and perseverance, the Mayor finds that suppressing stories cannot stop them from blossoming more beautifully than ever. This timely allegorical tale will be a useful tool for starting conversations with children about the power of activism and the written word.
