Barefoot Books will be represented by Karin Broadhurst. There will be stories and games from around the globe with themes like environmentalism, diversity and inclusion, empathy, global citizenship and social emotional learning. There will also be Cate & Levi puppets, handmade in Canada of fleece and recycled wool sweaters as well as a few wooden fidget toys.
Children need diverse, inclusive and inspiring books.
This is what Barefoot Books is all about. From the very beginning, their books have opened windows to windows to other cultures and perspectives, while also providing children of all backgrounds and abilities with a much-needed mirror of their own experiences.
We all want to raise the next generation to become global citizens who see the connections between all people, but who are also sensitive to the differences that make us unique. We invite you to browse our beautiful books, peruse the Barefoot Books' Manifesto of what it means to "live Barefoot" and discover all the ways in which you can join the movement to open hearts and minds through the power of stories.
