Melissa East, Community Bookseller
Gorgeous art, rich language, global and immersive stories! When I was first introduced to Barefoot Books in 2008, I was hooked! Our two daughters are now teenagers but I am so thankful that they 'grew up Barefoot!' I truly believe and have seen that sharing Barefoot Books in your home, school, or library will go far to create a kinder world.
Each page of a Barefoot Book is carefully designed for every child to find themselves, and come to the realization that they have more in common with a child across the world than they may have thought! You'll see this in Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush and what I term the quintessential Barefoot Book: Children of the World. We have so many titles in the Social Emotional category (my faves being Just Like Brothers & The Girl with a Brave Heart) and I would definitely encourage you to add a book from this category to your basket to help with big feelings - especially during this pandemic.
Please reach out and let me know how I can help you! I'm available for educational conferences, book fairs (including remote ones), fundraisers and community events.
