Barefoot Books create books to spark a passion for learning in young readers. This makes many of them just right for Primary and Preschool classrooms. You can search for the right books for your subject area, and find lesson plans to keep the exploration going after storytime is over. Many of our picture books introduce children to other cultures, and include informative and accessible endnotes for further exploration. Our books are also known for publishing stories that address challenging life issues.
We place a high value on listening as a vital gateway to literacy. All of our books are prepared with close attention to the quality of language, both for reading aloud and reading alone. Many of our titles are even accompanied by audio CDs for lively storytimes.
We offer schools and early childhood centres special discounts for all books purchased for your School's or Centre's library. To learn more - Talk to Jean Today.
We also offer ChildForum members special discounts. Visit http://www.childforum.com for details. ChildForum is New Zealand's leading early childhood education organisation.
Raise funds (or books) for your school or early childhood centre while emphasising the importance of literacy. We offer various options and can tailor them to suit your needs. Here are a few ideas:
- Host a Book Fair: You book the date and we will bring a wide selection of books to your venue for families and children to browse and purchase. (Only available in Wellington at present)
- Promote an order-based fundraiser: Send out a Barefoot Books flyer to parents and the community. You can collect orders through order forms or have them sent directly to us. We will handle all the ordering, sorting and distribution for you!
- Promote an online-based fundraiser: We will set-up a dedicated coupon code for use on our website and collect orders directly through the site. We will handle all the ordering, sorting and distribution for you!
