“The standard for excellence in children’s books” — Forbes

We’ve come a long way since we started our small home-based business in England in 1992. Since the beginning, we’ve wanted to create visually captivating books that celebrate diversity, spark curiosity and capture children’s imaginations. Our mission has endured over the decades and feels more relevant today than it has ever been.

Together, we have grown into a vibrant and diverse community focused on sharing books and gifts that inspire children to be compassionate, creative and curious. We invite you to browse our store, learn more about our Barefoot Journey and read our Manifesto about what it means to "live Barefoot."

Thank you for being a part of our movement to open children’s hearts and minds — and for believing in the power of stories to #OpenTheirWorld.
