Books For Girls





I have a Barefoot Book I highly recommend for girls. It's called "The Barefoot Book of Princesses". You'll find familiar stories to read aloud and the pictures are so beautiful to look at. While you're at it,why not go all the way and plan a Princess Party for your special Daughter, Granddaughter, Niece or Cousin?! The Company also has Princess Puppets, Princess Puzzles and Princess invites!


The Barefoot Book of Princesses - Hardcover
Read Alone: Ages 6-10
Read Together: Ages 4-8

This warm and humorous collection presents much-loved favorites such as "The Princess and the Pea" from Denmark and less familiar figures including "The Mountain Princess" from Persia and "The Horned Snake's Wife" from the Iroquois of North America. Caitlin Matthews's wonderfully dramatic retellings are perfect for reading aloud, while Olwyn Whelan's bright and witty illustrations are a feast in themselves.

Awards and Honors

Smithsonian Notable Book, 1999

Recent praise:

"Talking birds, magic red beans and, of course, resourceful heroines, tumbling out from a jaunty, fantastical compendium that reflects sources as various as Scandinavia, China and Persia." - Smithsonian Magazine

"Matthews come[s] up with treasure.... Whelan's effervescent artwork recalls Jane Ray's in composition, color and use of detail and borders. She tailors her delicate watercolors to each story's country of origin." - Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Those who enjoy fairy tales in their homes will love these stories… The illustrations are whimsical and colorful, full of delightful detail.” -The Old Schoolhouse Magazine
