Barefoot Books Giveaway!

My favorite thing about Barefoot Books is that they grow with your child. My daughter is only 3, so she of course has no clue what Mexico, China, Egypt, or Africa stand for or even understand where they are on the map. But she does understand vibrant pictures of children playing instruments, people dancing, and that the numerous monuments in the pictures stand for something. She does enjoy the rhymes and discussing what she sees in each picture. Not to mention she learns a little something after each read. Even if she forgets it 5 minutes later, with repetition, she will one day get it. And after she gets it, there's even more to learn!

One of my favorite Barefoot Books collections is the Travel Around the World Gift Collection. It is recommended for ages 3-10! That's 7 years of learning packed into 1 book! In the series, you and your child get to sail down the Nile, go on a African safari, ride a caravan down the Silk road in China, go to Mexico, and go with granny to the market. Each book teaches your child about the culture, geography, language, and history of each location. You also get a 63 piece Landmarks of the World Puzzle and fun tote bag.

My daughter's favorite book is "We All Went on Safari: A Counting Journey Through Tanzania." She is just learning how to count, so going through the book and having her count the animals is lots of fun. The book also has the actual number, so if you are teaching how to recognize numbers, this is a great tool. The pictures are beautifully illustrated and I love the vibrant colors. The words are large enough for beginning readers and lots of repetition is used. I would even recommend this book for young toddlers who are learning their animals. For the older children, they can learn how to count in Swahili! They can also learn how to say each animal's name in Swahili, learn Swahili names and facts about the Tanzania people, plus learn a short history lesson and see a map. I have enjoyed learning along with my daughter!

Each book has lessons in the back for older readers. You can learn about the Gods and Goddesses plus some cool info about Ancient Egypt in "We're Sailing Down the Nile: A Journey Through Egypt." You can learn about the story of silk, the Silk road, and even places along the road in "We're Riding on a Caravan: An Adventure on the Silk Road." And you can learn Spanish phrases and the history of Mexico in "Off We Go to Mexico: An Adventure in the Sun."

Barefoot Books are great books for homeschooling. They make amazing gifts. And your child will enjoy them as much as you do.
