Barefoot Books GA Review and Giveaway!!

Oh. My. Goodness. Get ready for this, Mamas!!

I had to contain myself when I opened up my little green bag, because I was out in public, but I wanted to squeal with delight, when I saw what goodies were bestowed to Penelope through our newest sponsor, Barefoot Books GA.

This is what Celeste, the owner of Barefoot Books GA, had to say about why she started her business:

“I saw an article in Mothering Magazine about moms who own their own home based businesses and Barefoot Books was represented. I have a background in Montessori education and know the importance of language and art in a child’s life. Barefoot Books is the perfect fit for me and my family. My son loves to be read to and to pretend to read. The illustrations are amazing and the content is too! And the key to joining for me, was the fact that there is no pressure to sell or meet quotas. You can literally do as much or as little as you want. I love the complete freedom to run the business in a way that suits my lifestyle. It is such a great community of people too!”

P.S. Celeste, also happens to be an awesome Doula, you can find her Doula info here.

Check out all these books that one lucky reader will win! And the one in the back comes with a sing along cd!

As I started to browse Barefoot Books website, I immediately resonated with the company. This is the kind of business I like to support! Check out their philosophy here. On top of that, their business strategy is providing opportunity for lots of women to have a flexibility in their career, in order to stay home with their kids, they call it living barefoot. Double points in my book!

These Yoga Planet cards were what got me the most excited! As you all know, we are big on yoga around here. They are beautifully illustrated and have all sorts of yoga poses, games and relaxation ideas on each card. When I used to teach kids yoga (ages 5 to 12), I would use the Yoga Pretzels card deck and would allow each child to pick a card from the deck and ask them to “teach” their pose to me and the rest of class. The possibilities with games and independent play are endless with a stack of cards like this. If you want to make yoga a part of your family’s lifestyle, and you are not a yoga pro yourself, this really is a must have.

Penelope is REALLY into farm animals these days. She loves to do her signs or make noises. Or rather, attempt to make noises, the only noises she has in her repertoire, is a really good elephant and very weird meow noise. Both are very cute. We even took her to a farm this weekend and she got to see all sorts of animals in person. You could just see her brain expanding while we were there! She was putting it all together that the animals in the books are real!

Anyway, so she saw the farm books in the stash, There’s a Cow in the Cabbage Patch and The Farmyard Jamboree, and she grabbed it from my hands and sat down with it.

The one above is a board book and the picture doesn’t do it justice, the art is actually pictures of hand sewn felt masterpieces! It’s amazing!

You can put an order in till Dec 22nd with overnight shipment. OR if you are local, Celeste has several titles in stock and she can meet up with you to deliver. If you would like to place a last minute Christmas gift order, you can email Celeste at [email protected] or give her a call at 229-393-6210.

These are just a few of the titles she has in stock:

I Took the Moon for a Walk

African Animals ABC
Barefoot Book of Earth Tales
The Boy Who Grew Flowers

    Celeste of Best Beginnings! Ah! I used to hang out in there and talk to her on Saturdays to nurse the Beast while at the farmer's market. She is such an amazing person!

    They seem to have an awesome collection of fairy tales – The Barefoot Book of Giants, Ghosts, and Goblins looks especially fun. (:

    I'm a sucker for books. My 6-month old daughter loves to snuggle up on the sofa and read a few books every night before bedtime. So sweet.

    It seems they have so many cute books!! Makes it hard to narrow it down to just a few..I want them all! 😉 But "I Took the Moon for a Walk" looks cute as well as "Star Seeker: A Journey to Outer Space".
