What Is New In Barefoot Books?

Barefoot Books recently came out with a new book called “Just Like Brothers”. Just Like Brothers is “a heartwarming fable for our time! A human mother tells her small son to watch out for wolves, and a wolf mother tells her cub to fear men — but their children don't listen. What will happen when the boy and the cub cross paths in the forest? This simple but profound story makes it easy to start conversations about prejudice, empathy, and trust.”

Here is what people are saying about Just Like Brothers:

". . . an enchanting tale of friendship and harmony. . . Expressive and lyrical. . ."
—Foreword Reviews, starred review

“The discovery that strangers can grow to trust each other is a message that's always worth repeating."
—Publishers Weekly

[Just Like Brothers] deal(s) with complex themes of difference, inclusion, and acceptance in a simple way. . . soothing and earthy"

This beautiful story, written by Elizabeth Baguley and illustrated by Aurelie Blanz, is perfect for children ages 3 to 7 years. The story teaches us that children are born without prejudice, and it will help you start conversations about complex topics like discrimination and acceptance. The story also depicts the special relationship between a mother and her child and how wisdom and strength are shared across generations. The story’s poetic language and moving illustrations will surely be your child’s favorite story for bedtime!

A Little Bit About Me

Hi! My name is Maria, and I am a Barefoot Books Ambassador for Western Massachusetts. My journey with Barefoot Books started one day during my maternity leave, and after having my precious down time from the kids, I was browsing through the internet, when I stumbled across a video on YouTube about Barefoot Books. My curiosity got the better of me, and I went to their homepage to find out more about them. My mind was blown! I totally fell in love with the colors, the message that every book portrays, everything that they offer to build self-esteem on children, and how they portray the message of diversity, inclusivity, and acceptance. The teacher and mommy in me feel in love. We currently live in a time where these positive messages are very much needed. We need to reinstall values and morals into our children, and what better way to do this than a book. My mission in life is to teach both my children to be kind, big-hearted, respectful, and to fall in love with reading.

Thank you for making me part of your day today. Hope to hear from you soon!!
