Holiday Share Barefoot Banner US 468x60

Love to curl up in front of a fire and read to your family on cold winter nights? …Well; my Barefoot Books shop has a great gift for you to share winter storytelling right here!

FIRESIDE STORIES – Tales For A Winter’s Eve  This warm collection of stories  are retold by Caitlin Matthews and illustrated by Helen Cann; and these are just the ticket for sharing on the couch while all snuggled up  together on frosty evenings! You will find eight wonderful tales from far and wide in this sumptious book; each celebrating a different aspect of the winter months! Together; they will keep you royally entertained all season long!  Your friends & family will love hearing the winter-time stories from Scotland, Russia, Austria, Canada and the Czech Republic! So make a pot of hot chocolate, grab the marshmallows and your favorite blanket; then snuggle up to listen to Schnitzle, Schnotzle Schnootzle – A Story for Christmas Eve or one of the other great tales. I am willing to bet your little ones won’t fall asleep until the last page is turned for “The End!” as my 2 yr old grandaughter says after every book!

*Browse our collection of 400 plus items and once you make your online purchase of at least $60.00 by 11:59 EST on Dec. 8th, 2008; you will receive a FREE COPY of Fireside Stories (Hardcover) when you check out!  FREE BOOK NO LONGER AVAILABLE; BUT FIRESIDE STORIES IS STILL AVAILABLE AT REGULAR COST!

There’s plenty of time to get your order before Christmas when your order regular shipping (UPS)  by December 16th, 2008 (or if later – you can rush ship it!). Check out our selection of toddler books, pre-k, elementary, and our new middle school/jr high editions (YA genre); or look over our beautiful titles to suit the adult collector on your holiday gift list. Barefoot Book of Classic Poems , Shakespeare’s Storybooks or Odysseus should work for them!

And for those of you who like to make your gifts count for charitable work at the same time; read about our new partnership with BOOKS FOR AFRICA and make a donation of a book  for $3.00 or $5.00 and we will see it gets shipped to Africa for children to learn to read & about the rest of the world.
