Father's Day

In honor of Father's Day, here are some titles from Barefoot Books that celebrate fathers!

Shopping with Dad: "Venture to the grocery store with this father-daughter duo on a very lively shopping trip. As their cart swings down the aisles, the pair create minor calamity left and right. The rhyming, bouncy text teaches an important lesson about accidents and responsibility, all with a healthy dose of humor."  Ages 3 to 7 years 

Hardcover version is currently on sale for $15.99 (usually $16.99), and paperback version is $7.99.


My Daddy is a Pretzel:  Twist your way into this story that introduces both yoga and professions. The nine yoga poses show how the practice of yoga relates to everyday life, and encourages readers to stretch both their bodies and their minds. There are tips about practice and preparation, yoga life, and having the right attitude.  For all age.

Currently available in hardcover for $15.99, usually $16.99.

And if you needed an extra incentive to order these (or any other) books, Barefoot Books is offering free shipping on all orders over $35 placed between Wednesday June 23rd and Sunday June 27th!

Happy Father's Day!

Ethiopia Reads

Ethiopia Reads is an organization that I became familiar with while I was waiting to adopt my daughter and trying to learn as much as I could about Ethiopia.

The mission of Ethiopia Reads is:
To create a reading culture in Ethiopia by connecting children with books. By planting libraries for children, creating culturally appropriate reading materials and training educators to nurture a love of books, Ethiopia Reads brings hope and educational skills to this generation of Ethiopians.
They publish books in English and Amharic (one of the main languages of Ethiopia), train teachers and librarians in Ethiopia, create and support free public libraries in schools, and get books to children in remote and rural parts of Ethiopia through "Donkey Libraries."    They do fantastic work, and I want to support them any way I can.

Enter Barefoot Books and their fundraising events!

If you go to my Barefoot Books marketplace, scroll down to the Events section, and then click on the Support this Event button in the Ethiopia Reads fundraiser section, I will donate 10% of the retail price of every book purchased there to Ethiopia Reads.

I hope you will join me in supporting this fantastic organization!  And if you have an organization or cause that you would like to fundraise for, please email me to discuss the possibilities through Barefoot Books (inventingliz at gmail dot com).
