Going Barefoot with Stallholder Richele Barburina
Stallholding fits in beautifully with Barburina's mothering and homeschooling of her two boys...'Because the founders of Barefoot began their business while working at home with their own children, they are incredibly insightful and supportive'
Eco-Libris is collaborating with Barefoot Stallholders to provide their customers with the opportunity to plant a tree for every Barefoot book they buy.
Barefoot Books is independent publisher of children's books, with offices in the United States and in the UK. Barefoot Books are available in bookstores and through Barefoot Stallholders, individuals who sell the books through home parties and community and school events.
Eco-Libris is a green business that enables people to do something reasonable, affordable yet with an impact: plant one tree for every book they read. By working with individuals and publishers to plant trees in developing countries, Eco-Libris makes sure that each tree is planted where it provides significant value for both the environment and the local communities.
Barefoot Books will be planting trees in partnership with Eco-Libris, for each copy of Earth Tales sold till the end of April in honor of Earth Day. If you would like to purchase a copy of this fantastic new title or check out what other great books please visit my Barefoot Books site;

A bookseller stars in her own fairytale
In an era when conventional wisdom in publishing holds that tots want nothing more than Disney, and that independent bookstores are being vanquished by the big, bad book chains, Nancy Traversy has so far been victorious.
Urban Baby helped spread the word about Barefoot in NYC!
Elizabeth Kennedy wrote an article on Tales from Old Ireland
" Living barefoot: Barefoot Books Cofounder Nancy Traversy pairs vivid art with high-quality multicultural children’s stories from the Nile to the Amazon, Shakespeare to mythology."
