Sarah's Barefoot Story
Hello! I am an educator and a mother to twin boys, and I am determined to raise my children to be kind, compassionate, and respectful global citizens. A very important part of my children's lifelong learning (as well as my own learning) is being able to acknowledge and appreciate differences between ourselves and others and to stand up for and stand with the most vulnerable.
The words and pictures in children's books play important roles in reflecting society's attitudes towards diversity, and whether we realize it or not, they send messages to even our youngest of readers about who matters. I love Barefoot Books and its mission to offer literature that reflects positive attitudes about diversity and empowering messages about different races, ethnicities, gender, sexual identity, ability, etc.
I am thrilled to be a Barefoot Books ambassador and look forward to working with families and other members of the community to help spread the message of inclusiveness, kindness, and respect for all.
