This is a fabulous company! We don't homeschool, but we read several books a day and this company has something for everyone in our family. These are books we won't outgrow. Herb,The Vegetarian Dragon has to be the most intriguing. It's hard to pick. I love riddles too.

My Daddy is a Pretzel. My daughter loves to do yoga poses!

How cute!
I love the "Map of the World" Play Scene with the stickers! It's so international!
And living in London, it's fun for my son to learn where his grandparents live, where his friends live, etc. and to see it all on a map!
How clever!

By Blogger Naomi, at 2/06/2008 5:49 AM  

My favorite is the new book on adoption Motherbridge of Love. My son loves it because it tells a beautiful story of two mothers: a tummy mama and an adoptive mama.

I love barefoot books international and mulitcultural coverage and would love to add to our collection, as we have one child from Russia and are adding another from Guatemala this summer/fall.

We love The Prince's Bedtime. Such a sweet story. I won't spoil the ending for those who haven't read it...but a worthy read for sure!

By Blogger Mommy Bee, at 2/06/2008 6:21 AM  

"We All Went On Safari" is my son's favorite counting book that daddy brought home for him from Africa. And I just noticed they have "We're Sailing Down the Nile." I must invest in that one, too! The illustrations are exquisite!

Definitely "Yoga Pretzels"!!! My daughter (2.5 yrs. old) and I do yoga together, everyday! I love these books!

By Blogger Dana Lynne, at 2/06/2008 7:20 AM  

My daughter loves the Cleo books! So engaging!

By Blogger Bree, at 2/06/2008 7:32 AM  

As a mom, I love all their multicultural offerings. My 15 month old daughter loves the Bear series of board books by Stella Blackstone, and my 5 1/2 year old son loves The Barefoot Book of Pirates. Thanks for an awesome contest!

By Blogger Piseco, at 2/06/2008 7:35 AM  

My boys love the Magic Ticket Ride book.

Thanks,

I'd be interested in Animal Tales from Around the World to read to both my daughters who adore animals and love to hear about places they've never been.

By Blogger Brooke, at 2/06/2008 8:00 AM  

I've never heard of any of these books, but The Animal Boogie looks like a lot of fun. I love books that are active for kids, and this one seems perfect!

By Blogger PS, at 2/06/2008 8:11 AM  

I have never heard of this company, but after looking at the site, it looks like they have some great books! One of my favorites on the site is Star Seeker. This is an obvious favorite for me since I love looking at the star. The illustrations in this book are amazing. Thanks.

I have never heard of this company before now but will be looking into it thanks to you! The books look amazing and the illustrations are simply beautiful. Off hand I think my favorite would be "We're Sailing to Galapagos" because my best friend is a Avian / Marine Biologist and she is always sending pictures of the places she goes. My daughter loves to look at the exotic animals she sends in pictures and asks questions about where they are from. What a fantastic set this is!

By Blogger Cricket, at 2/06/2008 8:54 AM  

I love the broad range of books, and I love that there are books in Spanish as we are trying to teach our children it.

By Blogger Jules, at 2/06/2008 9:24 AM  

I love all of their books! (At least all I've seen. : )) We got Elephant Dance at the library and I looked up the publisher online b/c I liked it so much. I really want to read Babushka!

By Blogger Jennifer P, at 2/06/2008 9:30 AM  

We're Sailing to Galapagos would be great since I was a missionary in Ecuador several years ago!

What a quality selection of books! The Secret Seahorse is great for any sea creature lover! :)

By Blogger kevnjacks, at 2/06/2008 9:40 AM  

The Animal Boogie looks like something both of my animal-loving kids would enjoy. The illustrations are simply stunning! ( meg.wilson@gmail.com )

By Blogger Meg, at 2/06/2008 9:42 AM  

fave book is Whole World because it teaches diversity (which my family has) and working together to save the world. My family is trying to live green so this book would be perfect! The princes bedtime looks great too!

By Anonymous tvollowitz@aol.com, at 2/06/2008 9:52 AM  

We love the bright colorful illustrations in the Cleo the Cat books.

By Blogger Becca, at 2/06/2008 10:29 AM

By Blogger Shelly, at 2/06/2008 11:29 AM  

motherbridge of love- as an adoptive mom, i'm always looking for books that do a good job of explaining the difference between the tummy mama and an adoptive mom=). jbubolz-miller@hotmail.com

By Blogger jbubolz-miller, at 2/06/2008 12:05 PM  

Herb the Vegetarian Dragon! We are raising our daughter vegan and this book would help her feel good about the choices we are teaching her.

By Blogger .Dee Lish, at 2/06/2008 1:15 PM  

I've been buying Barefoot Books for years. Bedtime for Bunbun is one of my all time faves! Also, anything illustrated by Clare Beaton.

By Blogger Mindful Momma, at 2/06/2008 1:21 PM  

I'm never read any of them... but you gotta love a company that is forest-friendly AND endorsed by Oprah!

By Blogger Jennifer McNichols, at 2/06/2008 1:45 PM  

Unfortunately I don't know any of the books listed but have read all of the comments thus far and would love to win it for my girls (Patience and Piper). I read one to two books every night before bedtime and this would be a great add on to our small collection of aready read (over and over) again books...please count me in!!!

By Anonymous babakers5, at 2/06/2008 2:07 PM  

I don't think we own any Barefoot Books yet, but the catalog looks super. The Boy Who Grew Flowers sounds great, and I love the sample pages. My daughter is only 11 months old, but has started a strong love affair with books already. How cool!

By Blogger Jenna, at 2/06/2008 2:36 PM  

"I Took The Moon For A Walk" looks like a fun book. My kids love books about nighttime.

By Blogger Bebemiqui, at 2/06/2008 2:47 PM  

herb the vegetarian dragon would be our fave, we have several vegetarian/vegan friends, and I love to encourage our kids to try, and hopefully learn to love their veggies!

By OpenID ladyamanda, at 2/06/2008 2:50 PM  

I haven't heard of these books, but they look fabulous! I definitely will take a look at these the next time I am at the bookstore. The Safari and Around the World ones sounds so intriguing.

By Blogger Suzy, at 2/06/2008 3:07 PM  

I love the animal boogie book- the pictures are wonderful and the story is fun. But really all these books are amazing and my kids would adore them.

By Blogger jwong, at 2/06/2008 6:59 PM  

These books look awesome! I love how colorful & multicultural they are. I also love how the art is really showcased in these books. My preschoolers love animal stories, so I think "Who are You, Baby Kangaroo" would be a favorite of my kids!

By Blogger Teri, at 2/06/2008 7:05 PM  

Ooh- Welcome to the World! It is so hard to find baby books with diverse babies in them. Thank you so much for this contest! I found a new 'bookstore'!

my grandson needs some early learning books or cds to get ready for school.

By Blogger junebug, at 2/07/2008 4:22 AM  

I like "my Daddy is a pretzel". My husband does yoga (I used to when I had time!) and I think it would be a great way to introduce my daughter to the idea of doing it with him or all three of us doing it as a family at some point.

By Blogger We & The Bean, at 2/07/2008 5:39 AM  

The Gigantic Turnip sounds like one my kids would love! :)

By Blogger Laurie, at 2/07/2008 8:30 AM

By Blogger Heather aka Mom in the Know, at 2/07/2008 8:51 AM  

Thank you for sharing this great site! I'm embarassed to say that I haven't read any of the books they have... YET! In browsing, though, I love "Daddy Island" There are so many "I love Mommy" shirts, books, etc. that it's really nice to see more daddy-bonding books out there!

By Blogger Ellie, at 2/07/2008 9:04 AM

Did you see the Barefoot "Bag of Books"? It comes with a really cute tote bag, books, and a stuffed Grasshopper! My daughter would love that. She would also love the Around The World puzzle.

By Blogger Melitsa, at 2/08/2008 8:56 AM  

Thank you for sending me in the direction of this company! Every book is gorgeously illustrated, and the range of tales is so broad. My fave is Motherbridge of Love, a poem about adoption. Really incredibly stunning. I just might get this for my pastor's wife. They've adopted two children from China, and are extraordinary at combining both the Eastern & Western worlds in their children's daily lives.

I am a teacher's aide at our local school and we have the "Bear in a Square" in our class. The children love the bright colors of this book.

By Blogger Brandy, at 2/10/2008 2:09 PM  

First of all-I am eco friendly and love your company. The "Great Race" is a wonderful book about the Chinese Zodiac, "Child's Book of Faeries"-we love faeries-they are so mystical and the Barefoot Book of Blessings is a must have for any family-a nice look at the beliefs of people around the world. Namaste to all.

Our kids will both be adopted (internationally) and all of these Whole World Book and Whole World Playground books will be perfect to help encourage them to explore the world with open minds. I am also a vegetarian and the Herb the Vegetarian book looks like a way to make it fun for our kids to learn about.

My little boy loves to exercise with me so we love the yoga books. I love in general that these books make learning fun!!

By Blogger Lomagirl, at 2/12/2008 11:48 AM  

What lovely books! I think the book I Took the Moon for a Walk would be perfect for my 4 year old grandson. He is afraid of being outside after dark, and I think this book would really help.

One Moose, Twenty Mice is a HUGE hit around here. I've read the boys My Daddy is a Pretzel at the bookstore, and they LOVED it. THat would be a fun addition to our collection!

We already have some World Playground cd's and my kids absolutely love them. I think they would really enjoy the yoga book because they LOVE to do yoga with me everyday.

We love The Barefoot Book of Princesses in our house. My girls love anything with Princesses and I love the illustrations are just beautiful

The African playground cd is wonderful, my kids love it. They also love the colorful cover art!

hmm hard choice, We All went on safari is probably my sons favourite, he loves counting the animals and now does it in English, Japanese and Swahili.

I love that company! Kids books are my weakness! Mod MOM is awesome!!

By Blogger Erica, at 2/14/2008 7:52 AM  

What an awesome company. I love their beautiful books. Gorgeous illustrations. My favorite is the Mrs. Moon Books & Cd. I love this book/cd combo for getting my little guy to sleep. It is our bedtime ritual to have stories and then soft music for him to go sleep. It would be nice to have this set to combine the two.

By Blogger Sawyer's Mommy, at 2/14/2008 9:27 AM  

Very cool line indeed. Not only is it great the these are eco friendly, but have family on the other side of the world (and trying to get a toddler to understand why she can't see them everyday) makes these books even cooler. With the world map, we would be able to show her where her cousins, aunts and grandparents are in China and Spain.

By Blogger Julie, at 2/14/2008 12:21 PM  

My Daddy is a Pretzel!

I've heard about these books on a few other mommy blogs, and I think I'm finally convinced to buy some. My toddler is too young for this yoga book, but as soon as I can bend her into a pretzel, we'll be reading this one together.

By Blogger Aletta C, at 2/14/2008 1:47 PM  

Wow, how can you add to all these comments? Both of my kids love books, and I love these for the fun and interactive elements. From a snuggling book, to a lay-it-on-the floor activity, any and all would make a wonderful addition to any home. :D

my dads a pretzel because we are avid about yoga we believe in teaching at a young age to destress

Oh how delightful...I love the Granny goes to Market, the Mexico Book, and the map with stickers...interactive and multi-purpose fun for our family that loves world culture and languages!

I don't believe that we've ever read any barefoot books, but we would sure love to add them to our library!

As a a former teacher I loved the literacy selections - too hard to pick one but since my littlest one is so little I like the Alligator Alphabet. What fantastic illustrations these books have!!

By Blogger Mrs. Aceto, at 2/16/2008 10:52 AM  

I've never heard of these books before, but I've book-marked the site for more investigation. We All went on Safari would be awesome for my son, he loves wild animals!

By Blogger SJ, at 2/16/2008 6:03 PM  

I would love to show my kids "my daddy is a pretzel." They know mom does yoga, but I don't think they understand what that means.

I liked the giraffe puppet and the book - bear at work. I love to read to my grandkids

Thank you, thank you, thank you for leading me to this company. I have been searching for books that my daughter can learn from, cherish the artwork, and pass on to her kids and barefoot books seems to fit the bill. I think that my husband and I would rather enjoy reading the Barefoot book of blessings to our little one since she is our biggest blessing.

By Blogger Yazmena, at 2/18/2008 12:42 AM  

Wow! This is the first I heard of this company and I love what I see! I just bought the "Tales From Old Ireland" book for my kids. My husband's family came over from Antrim county in the mid 1700's but they've lost most of their Irish heritage over the centuries. I'm excited to have a way to honor that heritage with my children.

By Blogger K.T., at 2/18/2008 2:33 PM  

Wow these books look awesome. I'd go for daddy is a pretzel.

"Animal Boogie" and "Prince's Bedtime" would be my picks. My nephew loves to read, so any of these books would thrill him. I'd love to win, so please count me in. Thanks for the chance to win!

This is my first time seeing these books online, and if I had to choose (which is really difficult), my fave would be Yoga Pretzels. I do a little bit of yoga with my baby sisters and cousins. It certainly bonds us together spiritually.

I am a teacher and I use We All Went On Safari to teach my class about Africa and to teach them to count in Kiswahili. I borrowed the book from my son, who loves it. He wants to be a Vet.

"My Daddy is a Pretzel".
My older kids and I do yoga, however her father is not big into it. I'm hoping this will help him get into it with his little one.

Thanks for this!

By Blogger Lilith Silvermane, at 2/24/2008 7:52 PM  

I love the Mexico book especially, and the Granny goes to Market book. I adore travel but won't be able to for a few years and I'd love to introduce the world to my little on this way. Thanks for such a fabulous giveaway.

We have lots of books and read every day, but we don't have any of these. I'll look for them at my library. :)

By Blogger Waldeck Dry Goods, at 2/29/2008 6:06 AM  

Just taking a look at their website I am really impressed. I have never heard of this company before, but their website had me at "printable sheets". I am always looking for freebies, and they even sell art from their illustrators! What an awesome idea, it seems like a very cooperative company.

By Blogger Stefan, Sarah and Lukka, at 2/29/2008 6:27 AM  

I love the Playtime Rhymes for Little People book, I am always singing the same thing over and over again to my son, this would be great to add some variety to what he hears. All of the books look great, I plan to order a few right now! Thanks for this offer!
