Barefoot Books – a wonderful collection of sing-a-long books full of diversity
Barefoot books have a wide series of colourful books. Many of them tell very appealing tales that children can sing-a-long too. Barefoot books use illustrations that represent an abundance of diversity and abilities, cultures and good energy.
A bit about Barefoot Books…
Barefoot Books are an independent children’s publisher that was founded in England. They have successfully been going since 1992.
My favourite books are the sing-a-long ones. Beautiful animations have also been designed to go with each sing-a-long story book and you can see them all on youtube*! Such as one of my favourites ‘A Hole In The Bottom Of the Sea’ – that follows the food chain of a shark, an eel, a squid, a crab, a snail and some seaweed in the deep sea – Set to a delightful upbeat tune of trumpets and percussions, that will defiantly get you grooving – and watch out, the fun lyrics are fast paced – see if you can keep up!

What I like most about Barefoot Books, is that the books are really thought out. They promote acceptance amongst cultures. Everyone is represented on the colourful pages. There is so much diversity, abilities, and happiness beaming off of each and every page, whether in the animal kingdom or the world of little children, all happily co-existing on our planet.
You really won’t be disappointed with these beautiful books full of delightful songs and rhymes.
