Melanie's Barefoot Story

Hello there!

I'm Melanie and I am thrilled to be a part of Barefoot Books Publishing! I am passionate about books and literacy so joining the team at Barefoot Books is a wonderful fit for me. Specifically, the mission of Barefoot Books is what really hooked me. The themes and stories from cultures all around the world, the diversity of children represented in the books so that inclusivity is nurtured, and that a child can look at a Barefoot Book and see themselves in the story is a very important part of developing self-esteem, self-love and respect for all. 

Being with others and talking about books is what I consider to be the best activity of all! I read books to my children when they were young, as they got older we would read the same books and then talk about them together. I have many happy memories of volunteering in the school library giving book talks to the children and organizing book fairs. Being a Community Bookseller at Barefoot Books Publishing is an opportunity for me to continue sharing the joy of books with children and their parents.

I would be more than happy to help anyone interested in learning more about these wonderful books! I can be available for Home Shows (Home Party), book fairs, themed parties such as baby showers or teacher staff workshops and conferences, and office groups shopping opportunities. I will also be attending various seasonal markets around my area. Another option for you is to become a Community Bookseller yourself! I would be happy to help you on this new adventure! 

You can reach me at my email: [email protected]

I live in the beautiful area of South Delta, British Columbia, Canada

Most sincerely,
