Our mission is to

Share stories Connect families Inspire children We’ve come a long way since Tessa and I started Barefoot Books from our homes in southwest England and London over 25 years ago. Since the beginning, we’ve wanted to create beautiful books that celebrate diversity, spark curiosity and capture children’s imaginations. Our mission has endured over the decades and feels more relevant today than it has ever been.

Together, we have grown into a vibrant and diverse community focused on sharing books and gifts that inspire children to be open-minded, open-hearted, creative and curious. This season, we are proud to present new products that will teach kids to persevere through challenges (see page 33), encourage mindfulness in even our youngest readers (see page 7) and inspire creative storytelling of all kinds (see page 10). Thank you for being a part of our movement to open children’s hearts and minds — and for believing in the power of stories to #OpenTheirWorld. With gratitude,
