Featured Title


Benita and the Night Creatures


Grades K-3


Benita loves to read in bed but keeps getting interrupted by a whistling Tunche, a scary Supay and other spooky creatures from Peruvian lore. To the creatures’ disbelief, Benita is so absorbed by her book that she’s not the least bit scared of them. This humorous celebration of bedtime reading puts a global twist on taking the “scary” out of monsters.

About Barefoot Books

This year, as we celebrate our 30th anniversary, it’s fitting that the overarching theme of our product offers is kindness. On a small scale, kindness can be towards oneself, nurturing positive identity development. Kindness can also ripple out to larger and larger spheres — to the development of global awareness and taking a stand for our planet. Our mission guides our publishing decisions more than ever, as we are committed to opening children’s hearts, minds, and worlds so that they can embody kindness in all its forms.
