Welcome! I’m thrilled for you to join me in a fundraiser for [Org]. Here’s how it works: you place a Barefoot Books order (details below), and [Org.] will receive 20% of the total sales as a gift toward their work! It’s a gift that gives twice, as you not only support [Org.] but also gift the little ones in your life with books that expose them to the beauty of this world. Information on ordering is at the bottom of the page, and the deadline is [DATE].
Brief description here!
About Barefoot Books
Barefoot Books is an independent publisher of children’s books that celebrate diversity, global learning, and care for the earth. Whether you’re living in Philadelphia or Phnom Penh or merely wishing for an adventure, positive stories from other cultures allow kids to appreciate rather than fear our world.
“It is time for parents to start teaching young people early on that in diversity there is beauty and there is strength.” – Maya Angelou
Below you will be able to peruse an overview of books for a range of ages, and from various countries and cultures.
Celebrate Diversity: Ages 0-3
“We read to know we are not alone.” – C.S. Lewis
“Isn’t it amazing that we are all made in God’s image, and yet there is so much diversity among His people?” – Desmond Tutu
These sing-along books feature colorful illustrations of children from around the world. They are a HUGE hit with children ages 1-6.
Explore the World: Ages 3-10
“What a miracle it is that out of these small, flat, rigid squares of paper unfolds world after world after world, worlds that sing to you, comfort and quiet or excite you. Books help us understand who we are and how we are to behave. They show us what community and friendship mean, they show us how to live.” – Anne Lamott
Cultivating Cross-Cultural Literacy: Books for Independent Readers
“All the reading she had done had given her a view of life they had never seen.” – Roald Dahl, from Matilda
These collections of stories from around the globe make wonderful read-alouds, and provoke questions of how different cultures perceive and contribute to the world in their own brilliant, unique ways. I’ve pictured a few here, but Barefoot also has anthologies of global stories on themes including animals, princesses, knights, fairy tales, African tales, Irish tales, ballet stories, and more!
“Diverse kids’ literature gives children of color a chance to see themselves as heroes, which is vital. But smart, thoughtful books with non-white protagonists can also give white children a chance to see black people and people of color as something other than anxiety-producing others or stereotypes.” – Noah Berlatsky
Cultivating Care for the Earth
Caring for our Minds & Bodies
