Our mission is to:

Share stories Connect families Inspire children 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 to a vibrant community of people who all believe in the power of art and story. Together we’re driving a movement to open children’s hearts, minds and worlds.

This season, we are proud to present new products that celebrate the power of imagination (see A Place to Stay, page 9), introduce new cultures and ways of life (see Global Kids, page 3, and Let’s Celebrate!, page 5), unlock the mysteries of our amazing universe (see Barefoot Books Solar System, page 11), and so much more! Thank you for being a part of our mission to #OpenTheirWorld.

With gratitude,

Nancy Traversy CEO & Co-Founder

hen Mama says, “We’re lucky to have a place to stay,” her daughter is not so

sure. This place is definitely not home! But with Mama’s help and a sprinkle of creativity, maybe the shelter can be a place of comfort after all.

Erin Gunti is a social services professional with expertise in helping children who experience displacement. She wrote A Place to Stay to open a dialogue between adults and children about childhood homelessness, and she hopes the book will serve as a call to activism to support those in need.

“Every child needs to see themselves in books. With Barefoot Books, I have the great joy of connecting schools and communities with books that are diverse in cultural and physical representation, and that encourage literacy and cultural awareness. I love what I do!” — Jen Butler-Brown, Barefoot Ambassador since 2009

“Barefoot books are stories with heart, conscience and purpose. They spark rich classroom discussions about important social justice topics. Also, as someone who teaches English learners, many of whom 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

“I stock Barefoot books with confidence because they consistently combine the finest writing with gorgeous artwork and always treat all humanity like one big family, celebrating all our similarities and differences and what’s really important in our lives” — Punam Thakran, owner, Monarch Imports

“Through books that celebrate world cultures, bilingual titles and perennial classics, the importance of story is always evident with Barefoot Books. As a buyer in an independent bookstore, I am pleased that these important books are purchased from a small, women-owned business that supports sustainability in the world of publishing” — Mary Alice Garber, Buyer, Children and Teens Department, Politics and Prose Bookstore

“I am proud to share Barefoot books with the kids in my library. These 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

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 fell in love with Barefoot Books because of the rich stories from different parts of the world. I love that children of all ethnicities can see themselves featured in the books. The colorful illustrations and the emphasis on social emotional topics help put children’s minds at ease and make it fun to deal with difficult emotions” — Sharon NDiaye, Educator, Parent and Living Barefoot Club Member
