Barefoot Books (Review & Giveaway)

barefoot-logo-red_yellowContest Closed.  Congrats to our winner, #134 - sharonjo

I met Ty at a local work-at-home expo in my area a few months ago.  She runs her own home business as a Mom Ambassador for Barefoot Books, a company offering beautiful books made to inspire young minds.

Barefoot Books began with two mothers who wanted their children to have books that would feed the imagination, while instilling a respect for diversity and a love of the planet. Today, we are a world-wide community of writers, artists, storytellers, musicians, and others who are committed to providing timeless stories and captivating art that can help children become happy, engaged members of a global society.

The storefront is easy to navigate, with several different categories to help you choose.  You can shop by best sellers, award winners, and even by age.   I started by selecting the 1-2 year age range to find something appropriate for Emma.  That’s when I saw Mother Goose Remembers, which is a collection of the classic nursery rhymes with a feather from Mother Goose “hidden” for children to discover on each and every page.  Barefoot Books even lets you see a few inside pages of the book to help you get the feel of what you’re buying, and I liked what I saw.

017

I knew by seeing the detail images of the book that the illustrations were unique, but they looked even better in person.  The illustrations are quilted and make this book special. 

005The fact that it included a sing-along CD was a huge bonus.  It adds to the storytime experience with songs and rhymes performed by Caroline Butler, Charles Spicer, Nick Hooper and Dave Townsend.  I like to play the CD in the car when we can’t read but still want to listen to the book and hear the stories.   What’s also great is that nursery rhymes are classic, and we’ll be able to enjoy them for years to come with the recommended age range being from babies-5 years.

It is a sturdy hardcover title with paper pages which Emma can be rough on.  She really loved this book and wanted to hold it and turn the pages herself but I had to monitor the situation carefully so she didn’t rip anything.
