About Barefoot Books

“The standard for excellence in children’s books” — Forbes

Barefoot Books is an award-winning, independent, women-owned and run, children’s publisher based in Concord, MA. Founded by two mothers in England in 1992, our mission is to share stories, connect families and inspire children. In 2017, we were named by Forbes as one of the 25 Best Small Companies in America.

From the very beginning, our books have represented a vast array of cultures and perspectives, while also providing children of all backgrounds a mirror of their own experiences. Today, we have grown into a vibrant and diverse community focused on sharing books and gifts that inspire children to be compassionate, creative and curious global citizens.

For nearly three decades, we have worked with talented contributors from all over the globe to create over 900 books and gifts that open children’s hearts and minds. Our proudest accomplishment is to have put nearly 30 million books into children's hands.
