Our mission is to:

Share stories Connect families Inspire children We’ve come a long way since we started our small home-based publishing house 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 23), encourage mindfulness in even our youngest readers (see page 19) and inspire creative storytelling of all kinds (see page 8). Thank you for being a part of our movement to raise the next generation of kind kids together!

With gratitude,

Do you believe that

“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!”

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

— 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. 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”

“Through books that celebrate world cultures, bilingual titles and perennial classics, the importance of story is always evident with Barefoot Books. Long-standing favorites such as We All Went on a Safari and World Atlas are introduced to a new generation along with this year’s amusing Chilly Penguin and the timely La Frontera. 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”

— Emily Golightly, ESL Teacher and President of the Crystal Coast Reading Council

— Mary Alice Garber, Buyer, Children and Teens Department, Politics and Prose Bookstore

“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
