CEO, Nancy Traversy, and Barefoot featured in the Christian Science Monitor!

Christian Science Monitor, March 2009
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."

Book Review: My Daddy is a Pretzel

My Daddy is a Pretzel: Barefoot Books-LadyD

About The Book

Yoga tips for little yogis are beautifully illustrated by Sophie Fatus. Ages 4-9 can read this book on their own and for ages 0-4 you'll enjoy reading this delightful hardcover children's book.

Recent Praise:

"Baron's style and sense of play brought yoga into my life. My Daddy is a Pretzel is a wonderful book!" —Helen Hunt

"I love Baron Baptiste's book, My Daddy is a Pretzel. I can't wait to buy it for every child I know so that there can be a whole young generation of kids practicing with this wonderful teacher, and learning how to not only do the asanas but to behave in a compassionate way in a kinder new world"—Ali McGraw

"With kids and parents running in many directions, these exercises geared for the entire family may be a yogi’s dream come true. A first glance will likely inspire you to strike a yoga position—but page through the stories and colorful illustrations by Sophie Fatus and you may just want to sit down and read the book with your kids. Both activities are healthy, after all! Slow down the pace and spend time together with this gift for your family’s minds, bodies, and spirit. "

Review of Mrs.Moon Lullabies for Bedtime

At the end of a long day, whether you've been working inside or outside, it's time to come inside now. Settle down for quiet time with a lovely story and a cd of lullabies playing in the background. Are you familiar with "Mrs.Moon Lullabies for Bedtime"?
I'm talking about a collection of 23 songs, sweet lullabies that calm you, ease you into a restful sleep. Soothing old and new songs played on acoustic instruments, you'll hear mostly guitar, keyboard, banjo, harmonica and accordion, accompanied with wonderful voices in harmony. The simplicity of melodies will transport you to another land, another place in time.
Now the book is beautifully illustrated by fabric artist Clare Beaton. Clare Beaton worked at the BBC for eight years, illustrating on many children's television programs. She has become a famous illustrator and has created nearly fifty books. I love her illustrations in this particular book. Each object or person in the story has an appearance of felt surrounded with the blanket stitch.

Dana Kletter is the author of Mrs.Moon Lullabies for Bedtime. Music has always shaped her life. She writes fiction and her reviews can be found in The Boston Phoenix and The San Francisco Chronicle. She lives here in the States. Dana founded the bands Blackgirls and Dish. Her voice is incredibly beautiful to listen to.

This book, Mrs. Moon Lullabies for Bedtime, is part of the PBS Parents Collection. Do you remember these words?
"Hush-you-bye, don't you cry, Go to sleepy, little baby. When you wake, you shall have All the pretty little horses." This is one of my favorites in addition to Rock-a-Bye, Baby. This book will truly provide the sweetest of dreams to all the children everywhere.
Read It Alone: Ages 4-7
Read It Together: Ages 0-4
Hardcover with CD; full-color illustrations; 48pages
Price $19.99 and sweet, peaceful dreams!
Happy Reading!
