*Giveaway!* Barefoot Books: Celebrating Art and Story

If you know anything about me, you probably know that I love to read. It won't take much for you to guess that I already love instilling this same enjoyment into my son. And if you've been paying any attention to the kinds of books I enjoy, it will come as no surprise to you that I'm head over heels in love with Barefoot Books.

Their website says it perfectly: Taking our imagination from many different cultures, we focus on themes that encourage independence of spirit, enthusiasm for learning, and sharing of the world's diversity. I couldn't have said it better myself.

I wish I had a whole bookshelf full of barefoot books. And maybe someday I will. But right now I have two and, in the spirit of Mama Panya's Pancakes I'm excited to share one with you.

Here's what to do: To win a copy of Elephant Dance: A Journey to India written by Theresa Heine, illustrated by Sheila Moxley, and published by Barefoot Books, sign in using Mr. Linky below, and link back here on your blog between Monday, October 1st and Wednesday, October 3rd. Once the contest ends, I'll choose one winner at random. If you don't have a blog, just sign Mr. Linky. Be sure that I can contact you via email or your blog!

Then, tell all your friends to visit this contest, and start reading Barefoot Books I know I will be. :)

I would love to have something besides "Things that Go" and "Clifford" to read. I can recite most of the books we own, even the new ones.

We couldn't agree more - we are so fortunate to work with a publisher of truly outstanding quality books as Barefoot.

Best of luck with building your collection. Remember, the bookselling industry is highly competitive, so support the publishers you love by buying their books from them (http://www.barefoot-books.com/us/site/pages/home.php)

Also if there are pancake lovers out there, feel free to check out our website at mamapanya.com.
