Our mission is to:

Share stories. Connect families. Inspire children. This season, we are proud to present new products that inspire children to be open-minded, open-hearted and creative. You’ll find books that represent #OwnVoices experiences (see From My Window, page 3) and unique perspectives (see My Panda Sweater, page 9), as well as titles that embrace the power of community (see The More We Get Together, page 5, and The Right Place, page 7). Plus, our exciting new nonfiction books will cultivate the curiosity to learn and grow (see A Rainbow of Rocks, page 14, and Ready, Set, Go!, page 15). These new titles beautifully reflect our nearly 30-year commitment to creating visually captivating books that celebrate diversity and capture children’s imaginations. Our mission has endured over the years, and feels more relevant today than it has ever been. Thank you for being a part of our movement to #OpenTheirWorld! With gratitude,

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. We are proud to continue the important task of featuring #OwnVoices with From My Window.

Do you believe that

inspiring children can change the world?

Meet other members of our vibrant Barefoot community who are already making an impact!

“The rich language, immersive artwork and global stories from Barefoot have captivated us for years. Encouraging imaginative play and storytelling is the heart of everything we do, and Barefoot is a perfect match as we celebrate diversity and discover our common bonds. Our hearts and horizons have grown through these beautiful stories. It’s a joy and honor to share Barefoot with the world!” — Melissa Wolff, Barefoot Books Ambassador since 2016 and owner of MeLee Mercantile

“This year, we partnered with Barefoot Books and Books For Africa to bring 300,000 books to children infected and affected by HIV and their caregivers in Mozambique. Barefoot’s engaging and colorful books will stimulate child development at a young age and will open doors to other worlds. In addition to encouraging children to learn to read, these colorful books bring families together to explore the stories through words and pictures. When you give a child a book, that sends a powerful message about the child’s worth, his potential and her future” — Hayley Bryant, Director of the COVida project with FHI 360

“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)

Barefoot Books CEO & Co-Founder Nancy Traversy reading aloud from How Loud Is a Lion? (see page 41), one of the books chosen to launch the Books For Africa initiative in Mozambique.


“The Concord Museum is proud to partner with Barefoot Books on Family Trees, our annual celebration of children’s literature. Each year for the past 24 years, we have brought children’s books to life using trees of all shapes and sizes as a canvas. With Barefoot Books as our lead sponsor, we have been able to welcome the community through our doors to share the joys of imagination, childhood, storytelling and one of life’s greatest pleasures ­— reading a treasured book to a child” — Tom Putnam, Edward W. Kane Executive Director, Concord Museum, Concord, MA

“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! We are proud 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

“With the help of Barefoot Books, WILL-TV’s Book Mentor Project is able to offer culturally diverse and inclusive titles to enhance the home libraries of children in our community. We are proud to partner with Barefoot because we know they work hard at providing a variety of culturally relevant topics and experiences”

“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”

— Ana A. Olguin, Book Mentor Program Manager, Illinois Public Media

— Mary Alice Garber, Buyer, Children & Teens Department, Politics and Prose Bookstore, Washington D.C.
