2010 Holiday Gift Guide: Barefoot Books








My daughter loves books.  She will frequently pass up playing with her toys to sit and "read" her books.  We read throughout the day, she has a stack of books in the bathroom, and we always read a book before going to bed.  She probably has close to 100 books.  Now we have never read them all, she has about a dozen that are her favorites and we read them over and over and over. 

New to her library, from Barefoot Books is There's a Cow in the Cabbage Patch, How Big is a Pig, and If You're Happy and You Know It.   Right now she loves books with animals so the There's a Cow in the Cabbage Patch and How Big is a Pig books have been a huge hit.  I like the  unique illustrations and cute story lines.

Singing and dancing are also one her list of fun things to do, making the If You're Happy and You Know it book with sing along CD a hit since.   The Barefoot Books version is a multicultural variation of the traditional song and includes children from cultures all over the world. 





Barefoot Books was also kind enough to send along a set of their Yoga Pretzels cards.  I have always wanted to take yoga but have never taken a class because I am afraid that I will look silly or fall on my head while attempting a Down Dog or Airplane.
The Yoga Pretzels cards are perfect for me, because I can trip over myself and fall on my face a hundred times in the privacy of my living room and the only witness will be my daughter.  The Yoga Pretzels cards are brightly color coded by type of pose (my favorite are the Breathing and Time In sections, I am really good at those!)  Each card has easy to understand step-by-step instructions and illustrations to guide you into each pose (even the most novice yoga newbie can figure them out, by that I mean me!)
