Storytime Savings

Have you discovered Barefoot Books, wonderful multi-cultural storybooks? What I like most about them is they often include useful endnotes which make the books great for use with children of different ages, and give the books a longer life. "The Beeman" for example, is a simple story of a little boy helping his Grandpa look after his bees and harvest the honey, but at the end, there is a lot of information about these fascinating little creatures, which was really useful when we were learning about bees. Or "We all go on Safari" - as you share a charming journey across the African savannah, you can learn to count in Swahili and at the back you'll find information about Tanzania, its animals and people along with a lovely map. I have always loved these books, and shared them with my children and nowadays we use them a lot in our home education. We especially like to make our own maps, based on the Barefoot ones, which we paint and then decorate with native animals, people, produce etc. The books are always beautifully illustrated and reflect the world's diversity, including stories from different cultures all around the world.
There are lovely board books for little ones, singalongs with CDs which animate the books on your computer (My toddler loves these!), early readers and more advanced independent readers, lovely hardback books which make great gifts, story compilations ... Many of the books come with audio CDs which have been especially popular with my boys who are reluctant readers but love a good story at bedtime. A while ago I signed up as an Ambassaor with Barefoot Books so that I can share these books in my community.
