I am an avid reader and one of my goals as a parent is to ensure that my boys develop the same love of reading that I have. That’s why finding engaging and age-appropriate books is something that I am passionate about. Recently, Jen Mills of Barefoot Books contacted me and gave me the chance to review a few of the company’s colourful and educational children’s books. I had never heard of the brand before and I was so excited to have the chance to find new books for my boys to enjoy.
I received The Feathered Ogre and The Barefoot Book of Pirates to review. Zackary has recently reached the point of being able to read chapter books by himself and I loved that Barefoot Books had age-appropriate chapter books for children to help promote independent reading. But what really makes these books so special is the fact that they’re inspired by stories from around the world to give children an introduction to different cultures as well as providing engaging tales to enjoy.
