“The standard for excellence in children’s books” — Forbes
Founded in England 25 years ago, we are an award-winning, independent children’s publisher based in Cambridge, MA, with a mission to share stories, connect families and inspire children. In May 2017, we were named by Forbes as one of the 25 Best Small Companies in America. We have created more than 600 books, spoken word stories, music, animations, characters, puzzles and games that open children’s hearts and minds to our wonderfully diverse world. Our first app, Barefoot World Atlas, has had 4 million+ downloads and was selected by Apple as one of their top 10 apps of all time. Our YouTube channel has over 100 million views. However, our proudest accomplishment is to have put over 20 million books into the hands of children around the world. Renowned for our pioneering approach to creating and marketing high-quality, diverse and inclusive children’s books, as well as our colorful, collaborative and fun working culture, we have laid the foundations to grow Barefoot into a timeless global family brand for the very best children’s content.
