Talula’s Barefoot Books Blog

A running commentary on life as an online bookstore owner after 25 years in Early Childhood Education.

About Talula

Barefoot Logo w/girl Ad   Hello & Welcome To Talula’s Barefoot Blog!

This is a venture in cutting edge communications from a non-techie. As it is obvious I am new to blogging; I will try to speed-up the learning curve so as not to embarass myself too much, considering I am (or was) a professional educator in my previous life! I have semi-retired from that career and have recently embarked on a new exciting journey as an online bookstore owner. 

If you love books that have lasting value as classics for adults, timeless stories retold again and again for children’s enjoyment & learning; or even bestsellers, audio books, music  & games that you would like to review, discuss or promote for early literacy programs, your family or even for your own book club – then you have arrived at a comfortable cottage-like place to visit often. Book mark this page, pull up a chair, slip on your reading glasses and prepare to discuss books in all their forms.

I have created two different pages for your viewing pleasure; one for children “Talula’s Children’s Books” and one for their grown-ups “Talula’s  Resources” .

Please take your time to enjoy the information: because you might find something exquisite for adult collectors in the Talula’s Wagon Barefoot Books  Marketplace right alongside your favorite Children’s Books!  Hint: Look for Classic Poems, Shakespeare’s Stories, Ballet Stories, Odysseus and other great anthologies!

>>>>>> GO THERE NOW! <<<<

You might find useful material, toys, or equipment for your family or for your classroom as you look over the reviews, links and companies listed on the Grown-Ups Resources Page. And there is more in the categories listed under my blogroll on the right column.

if you are someone who is looking for a work-at-home business you might want to check out our very low-cost start-up to sell children’s books in your community or on your own website/blog. Just go to the header of this blog and click on “Live Barefoot…Imagine!”  and watch our company video; then follow the links to more information. 

Why don’t you browse around here on Talula’s Barefoot Blog and find a place that you want to join in the conversation and jump into the midst of it all.  After all; aren’t you a book-a-holic, too? Join me here on the front porch swing at sunset and bring your own lemonade!

    Talula, thanks for visiting my blog and for the detailed assistance in finding resources. I will get straight to work, and I am sure that with your advice I will be able to help the parents and the little boy (and the others who need support). Thanks again!

      You are so very welcome! Again, Good Luck with this family; they really need your help – even though they don’t seem to know it yet. P.S. ask the Directress (or Principal as the case may be) to help approach this set of parents with a group meeting. It becomes a little more valid (and harder to ignore) if more than one rep of the school is involved. My approach & tips come from practical experience in 25 years of Early Childhood Education as a teacher and director with families from every culture and country of the world. I worked with the University of Houston for a while (now THAT’S A REAL NO-LANGUAGE-ALL BODY LANGUAGE situation if there ever was one). :() Have a great week!

  2. Hi Talula,

    The family house is in an uproar of change today, what with the “Little Lizzy” finally on the mend after a really nasty virus since Monday! I have been trying to grab an hour every chance I can to manage my online businesses to no avail. so now that she has slept 2 hours this afternoon — I am trying to play catch -up! When that is done, I will spend tomorrow sorting and re-packing ALL my camping gear to gon a a 4day camping trip with my son, his wife and his 3 kids. That sounds easy , right? Wrong as can be! These 3 kids have NEVER been camping in a tent before and are rarely not busy with scheduled activities or plugged into I-pods, DVDs, or e-games! The plan is to teach them how to learn about & enjoy nature and camping; but I have the feeling that this is going to be a learning experience for my son & daughter-in-law instead. I figure it will take about 6 hours before we hear the first “there’s nothin to do here!” out of the 5 or the 7 year old. To top it off — the 7 yr.old girl is a very active Tomboy who is deathly afraid of “bugs” of any kind. The only saving grace for this trip looks like it will be a lot of fun for my 15 year old grandson & me; whom both love the outdoors and nature (camping included). We will do all the cooking; since we know how to camp cook! But we(as in he & I) made an agreement that somebody else WILL do the dishes; since we are cooking. And I just know that we will be doing a lot of laughing at the others; so here goes! Will let you all hear about the experience after we return next week! Oh! and Yes we will be taking reading material — I have to scare the pants off the littlest one with a monster story or two, don’t you know!
