Diane's Barefoot Story
I am part of an organization where volunteers go weekly to preschools in challenged communities to read and give out free books to the children. We instill the love of reading at an early age to give the children a better start in life. I am always looking for books with diverse characters so the children can see themselves in the stories. I just discovered Barefoot Books and I am so thrilled with their books focusing on diversity, inclusivity and honoring the world and all of its inhabitants. I am very passionate about getting great books in the hands of all children and their families. So thrilled to be part of this company.
