Children need diverse, inclusive and inspiring books.
This is what we’re all about. From the very beginning, our books have opened windows to other cultures and perspectives, while also providing children of all backgrounds and abilities with a much-needed mirror of their own experiences.
We all want to raise the next generation to become global citizens who see the connections between all people, but who are also sensitive to the differences that make us unique. We invite you to browse our beautiful books, peruse our Manifesto of what it means to "live Barefoot" and discover all the ways in which you can join our movement to open hearts and minds through the power of stories.
Our mission is to:
Share stories, connect families, inspire children
Barefoot Books was founded in 1992 by two young moms working from home with the dream of creating beautiful books that celebrate diversity, spark curiosity and capture children’s imaginations. Since then, we’ve grown into a vibrant community through our Ambassador program, which empowers people just like you to start their own home-based businesses selling our award-winning books and gifts.
