Event Sponsor: Barefoot Books

Thank you to Barefoot Books for sponsoring EarlyEdCon 2017!

Barefoot Books is a women-owned children’s book publisher based in Cambridge, MA. We sell beautifully-illustrated books with stories from around the world. Our books are created to spark a passion for learning in young readers. This makes many of them just right for primary and preschool classrooms. On our website, you can find lesson plans to keep the exploration going after story time is over. Many of our picture books introduce children to other cultures, and include informative and accessible endnotes for further exploration. We are also known for publishing stories that address challenging life issues: themes include diversity and inclusiveness, social-emotional learning, and global citizenship. We place a high value on listening as a vital gateway to literacy. All of our books are prepared with close attention to the quality of language, both for reading aloud and reading alone. Many of our titles are even accompanied by audio CDs for lively story times.

Contact me to purchase books for your family and friends; if you would like more information about fundraising for your school or organization through sales of Barefoot Books or are interested in hosting a Barefoot Books book fair at your school.
