Marshmallow Mondays


MM Goes Barefoot

Marshmallow Mondays is proud to introduce its new venture with Barefoot Books.  If you’re looking for new, captivating stories with beautiful illustrations to inspire your children and strengthen their imagination, please check out the Barefoot Store.  I recently learned about Barefoot from a friend, and immediately fell in love with these beautifully crafted books. 

On the top left of our homepage, you will see the Barefoot Books banner, which will now have a permanent home on Marshmallow Mondays, so that our readers can visit Barefoot anytime.  By clicking on this banner, you’ll be able to visit my personal page at Barefoot, which lists some of my favorite Barefoot Books.  I encourage you to check them out, as well as all of the Barefoot Books which can be found by clicking “Shop” at the top of the page. 

So what are these books about?   They’re about exploring the planet, other cultures, animals and ourselves.  You’ll find books for the adventurous mind, books for the explorer, classic fairy tales, kid-friendly recipe books, books about knights, pirates, princesses, magicians and more.  You’ll also find books with singalong CD’s and story CD’s.  Simply put, these books feed a child’s imagination. 

If you’re a follower of Marshmallow Mondays, you know how much Rydan and I enjoy books.  It’s truly been amazing to watch the impact that books have had on his life.  No matter where he is, how he’s feeling or what day it is, he cannot go to bed without Ryan or me reading him a bedtime story.  He loves to choose new books at the library.  He practically tears open his backpack anytime a Scholastic Book Order form comes home with him from school.  He currently is in need of upgraded storage for all of the books in his bedroom, and once he discovers a new series of books, he is eager to read all of the books in that series (i.e. Berenstain Bears & Fancy Nancy).  Now that we’ve discovered Barefoot Books, I am hopeful that Rydan will fall in love with these too.

With the holidays just around the corner, now is the perfect time to give the gift of  a book to the special child in your life.  Barefoot has books for all ages with a variety of subjects to choose from, so you’re sure to find something for the youngest mind on your list, as well as the tough to buy for adolescent.  And because giving back is at the heart of Barefoot, for every order placed this month, Barefoot will donate one book to children in need.

Lastly, Barefoot Books offers the opportunity for home parties (think parent/kid quality time with other parents and kids), fundraisers and community events.  If you’re interested in any of these opportunities, please let me know.
