Barefoot Books Review



I love reading, and I love reading to Avery. We read a book every night before bed, and we read randomly throughout the day as well. I'd say we average about 4 books a day. It's always fun to get new books for both her and I. We love exploring a new set of books and it helps bring some variety into her book collection.
So when Barefoot Books sent us 3 (three) books for review I was very EXCITED. I thought we were getting 1 book. When I saw 3 I jumped and WOKE Avery up from her nap. Note to Self- Don't ever do this again!!!

We received Octopus Opposites, Who's In The Garden and The Sounds Around Town. All 3 books are a LITTLE over Avery's age, but I like that because it challenges her. Who's In the Garden is a Board book so I let her read this one by herself, but the Other 2 are paged books so I read these to her instead and they stay on a high shelf the other times. 
 
 Here's inside the Octopus Opposites. It's so well Illustrated
 
 The Sounds Around Town is well Illustrated as well.
 
We are loving these books. They have great store lines and are colorful so they keep a Busy 3 yr olds (almost) attention! I like that!

Explore. Imagine. Create. Connect. Give Back. That’s what Barefoot Books is all about. It’s exploring other cultures, our planet, ourselves. It’s making time for make-believe and letting imaginations run wild and free. Most of all, it’s about using the power of stories to nourish the creative spark in everyone and strengthen connections with family, the global community, and the earth.

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.

I'm liking this website and their books alike. I will order from this site again!
