I was wrapping up a book school fundraiser last May and forgot I had these photos. It's always exciting to see tons of books around your living room and then to dive into the work ahead of bagging up all the individual orders and delivering them to the school where the book fair was held. I originally signed up with Barefoot Books as an ambassador to be on my daughter's team, to help support her as a team leader. She is doing very well on the East Coast while I've pretty much retired from selling Barefoot Books. I enjoy reading children's books to my grandchildren, and I'm writing my own stories. I've enjoyed the journey, meeting sweet families at farmer's markets and going to public , private and Montessori schools. Thanks so much for your support through the years and remember, you can always order these beautiful books through my daughter at www.BarefootBookNook.com or through my Amazon links as an affiliate.
I'm a huge fan of author, Jane Yolen. Have you read any of her books and if so, do you have a favorite?

The Animal Boogie is an awesome book, combined with a very catchy song, it's a huge winner with toddlers and pre-schoolers. If you have the time, you might be interested in the video on YouTube. Join in with the singalong.

The World Atlas has been so popular in the schools, home school and family libraries. They also have the app for iPads that is awesome.

While we were in full production with the book distribution, we paused our work for a delicious snack, our very own persimmons. The Fuji persimmons are crispy like an apple, while the other type are much larger in size and mushy inside when ripe like jelly. Yummy!

Happy Blue Monday while eating and reading!
