Join us for food, fun and conversation as we gather to share ideas about supporting literacy at home.

Studies show that family experiences have a huge impact on children’s literacy development! Learn from an experienced Barefoot Books Ambassador about how to best support literacy across a range of ages. You’ll receive valuable information to take home as well as personalized suggestions for the perfect books and products for your kids.

How do we instill compassion in our children’s hearts? Host a Barefoot Open Hearts & Minds Party!

This grown-ups only get-together is a chance to reflect on ways we can cultivate compassion in our children and expose them to diversity. It’s a meaningful time together with like-minded parents where we go beyond the small talk. Your knowledgeable Ambassador can make customised suggestions for books and products that will inspire empathy in children.

Do your kids love music? Host a Barefoot World Animals Party!

Your guests will gleefully join in “the Animal Boogie” — a dance that continues to captivate millions of kids around the world! They'll also get to know the animals of the Indian jungle through unique hands-on activities. Learn great storytelling tips as you and your guests browse books and products that teach children of all ages about wild animals around the world.  

This grown-ups only gathering promises delightful drinks, stress-free shopping and scintillating conversation!

We’ll talk about why fairytales have endured and are still so valuable for children today. Your experienced Ambassador can make personalised suggestions for Barefoot books and gifts that will delight the kids in your guests' lives. Go ahead and treat yourself and your friends to a fabulous girls' night out!
