Have you finished your holiday shopping yet? If not, there is still time - and still time to save on Barefoot Books for the holidays!
This week, through Monday December 19th, Barefoot Books is offering 30% off on a selection of books that make great gifts. Classic collections of stories, timeless tales, poetry, and activity cards. Check out the entire sale list here.
Here's a book that's on sale this week, with the appropriate title of The Gift.
From the Barefoot Books website: The exceptional talents of Carol Ann Duffy and papercut artist Rob Ryan
combine to present the story of a girl’s journey through life and the
desires that shape it. With a kind of magic that is timeless, The Gift speaks to everyone who wonders about the mysteries that lie at the heart of the human experience.
The website says The Gift is for children eight years old and up, but I think it could be appropriate for younger children who are ready for this conversation. I know that I will be buying this book myself to help my four-year-old understand the cycle of life and death.
The illustrations in this book are so delicate and beautiful, as we've come to expect with every book from Barefoot.
The Gift is a well-made and sturdy hardcover book that is usually $16.99 - on sale through next Monday for $11.49. Buy one for your own family as well as any other families on your gift list.
