The Barefoot Books Mission: At Barefoot Books, we celebrate art and story that opens the hearts and minds of children from all walks of life, inspiring them to read deeper, search further, and explore their own creative gifts. Taking our inspiration from many different cultures, we focus on themes that encourage independence of spirit, enthusiasm for learning, and sharing of the world’s diversity. Interactive, playful and beautiful, our products combine the best of the present with the best of the past to educate our children as the caretakers of tomorrow. Literacy is an integral part of Barefoot Books' mission. We have partnered with Reading Is Fundamental, Reach Out and Read, and First Book and are diligently striving to become more involved with other national and local literacy organizations.
A message from the founders: We’re convinced that art and story play a vital part in children’s lives. We hope you are, too! Our aim is to prepare the children of today to be the caretakers of tomorrow. We believe that high-quality art and story can play a vital role in fostering youngsters’ creativity and capacity for independence, encouraging them to express themselves with confidence and to see and explore the world around them from different points of view. These, it seems to us, are essential skills in our beautiful yet fragile world. Every country needs creative people – in business, in the arts, in medicine and science, and in government. But creativity doesn’t happen all by itself: the seeds are in all of us, but the way we raise our children, and the emphasis we place on their imaginative development, is what helps those seeds to grow. We often incorporate cross-cultural themes into our books, and we set out to create content that offers high educational value and is lots of fun at the same time. We focus on engaging each child’s imagination, and on presenting themes that can open into group or parent-child discussions, performance, art sessions, dance routines and a lot more. So we offer books, CDs and gifts that are thoughtfully written, beautifully designed and illustrated, and have high educational value. They are lots of fun and they are designed to last, but above all, they are meant to be shared and enjoyed. We hope you enjoy your Barefoot journey!
