Honored b Forbes in y 2017 as one of th e 25 Best S ma Compani ll es in America

In 1992, we first dreamed up the idea of creating beautiful, enduring books that celebrate diversity, spark curiosity and capture children’s imaginations. Since then, we’ve grown from a small home-based business into a vibrant community of people from all walks of life. Together, we’re driving a movement to open children’s hearts and minds through the power of stories. Our commitment to cultivating compassion has stayed at the forefront of our mission for 25 years and, now more than ever, we are dedicated to nurturing inclusion and acceptance. From the heartwarming tale of a young boy and a wolf cub who question prejudice (page 3) to an immigration story of a courageous journey to a new home (page 8), our books will encourage empathy in the young and the old. We are proud to continue to inspire children to be mindful of their own perspectives and of the world around them — and to empower our women-run community of entrepreneurs to share stories, connect families and inspire children. I hope you enjoy browsing our unique collection and that you’ll join us on our Barefoot journey. Happy reading!

Everyone has a story to tell — and the #ownvoices movement is trying to ensure that every voice gets heard. The hashtag describes books in which the author and/or illustrator share a common identity with one or more of the characters, or identify with the culture that originated the tale, as with books such as Prince of Fire (see page 44) and The Wise Fool (see page 41). We are proud to continue the important task of featuring #ownvoices with La Frontera.

Many of my children come to school while coping with stress in their lives, so I love titles such as Emily’s Tiger for discussing feelings and coping strategies” — Caitlyn Fine Wiley, Teacher

Do you believe that

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

“We look to Barefoot for diversity and inclusion — to bring relatable books to children no matter their background or ethnicity. Barefoot takes great care to celebrate all children, and because of this we can inspire our children to be great citizens of the world”­ — Katie Sue Buchholtz, children’s librarian

“I have been an educator for over 10 years and earned my M.A. in Library and Information Science to better share my love of reading with my students. Once I read a few Barefoot books, I knew that I needed to share these incredible stories!”

“Barefoot has raised the bar by making diversity in their books a matter of course. When my children see themselves reflected in admirable characters, their confidence soars. Each carefully produced Barefoot title is a valuable mirror or window, reflecting a child’s world back to them or showing a new perspective”

— Clair Thomas, teacher & parent

— Autumn Allen, Barefoot Books Editorial Intern & parent

“Barefoot Books drew me in with the singalongs. My kids love these unique stories! I am proud to share books that encourage creativity and discovery with families in my community, too” — Erica Miller, Ambassador since 2017

Barefoot Books


“For me, Barefoot Books is not just a business, it is a grassroots movement, with a vision for raising compassionate children for a brighter future. Together we are working toward this goal, each and every day. . . I keep sharing, I keep giving, I keep talking about the “mission” — and every small step is taking us forward toward a kinder, better world” — Shirin Shamsi, Ambassador since 2011

“I am incredibly proud to include Barefoot books in my children’s book and gift shop. These unique treasures represent the very best of what I know is good for children as they explore their imagination, learn about themselves and their world, and connect to a global community. These books are nothing short of magical!” — Barbara Saunders Sims, owner, Storybook Village of Pentwater

“Barefoot books can help children feel confident in their unique identities, identify and express their feelings, and develop empathy towards others” — Brittany Mackey, Ambassador since 2015
