Mary Ann's Barefoot Story

Glad you're here! These books were a wonderful discovery for my family. I find these books speak to people in a special way – the beautiful illustrations, the playful yet thoughtful stories, the layers of meaning hidden in picture and story, and the openheartedness about the world around us and its people. These are books with soul.

The books we read shape our lives, open our eyes and hearts, and expand our horizons. Reading with my kids is one of the dearest moments of my day – it invites play, questions, exploration, silliness, and creativity. It’s my pleasure to connect families, support schools, and promote early literacy.

As Ambassadors we also have the opportunity to be positive voices in our communities for peace and acceptance, a gentle force for good. Inspired to join us? Feel free to message me – I’m happy to help you get started. You can “Blossom with Books” too!

You can help me get these books to kids in need: Order through Thank you!
