If you donate the cost of a whole book, you will have the option of attaching a book plate to the book to mark your donation.

Since I first started selling Barefoot Books, I don’t think I’ve stopped singing the praises of Storytime. This collection of seven folk stories includes the Gingerbread Man (our favourite!) and Stone Soup, and comes with a lovely CD of the stories narrated by Jim Broadbent. And for a limited time, I am offering this collection for only £4.00 (RRP £8.99) plus £2.50 p&p.
This offer comes directly from my own personal inventory and is not available on the Barefoot Website. Stock is limited, so once it’s gone, it’s gone. UK postage only.
