Barefoot Books Review and Giveaway

Barefoot Books are a lovely children’s book company with a large range of beautifully illustrated titles for all ages.  The books are of a high quality both in the finish of the book and the detail inside.  They also have a large range of books with an included story CD, perfect for children to listen to independently or for long car journeys.  We received a couple of books to try out and they didn’t disappoint – see what we thought below.

Port side pirates barefoot booksPort Side Pirates is a delightful singalong adventure that both my children throughly enjoyed.  Pirates seem to be a popular theme for them and 5yr old Miss M had actually sung a couple of verses of this song with slightly different words in her pirate school assembly a few months back.  She was keen to lead the way with the words and 3yr old Mister B eagerly joined in.  The book has brightly coloured illustrations that we all enjoyed but the jolly nature of the song is what got us all up singing along, the children dancing and left us feeling high spirited.  A great little book with a CD that’s perfect in the car for singalongs – I think I’ll be hearing this one many times over – both my children love singing along and adding in their own pirate expressions between verses!!  “Shiver me timbers, me hearties”

the twelve dancing princesses barefoot booksThe Twelve Dancing Princesses is a high quality hardback book by Xanthe Gresham, with the most elegant, exquisite illustrations I have seen.  Illustrated by Miss Clara, this really is a book to treasure and should last a young girl many years of enjoyment.  Being quite a lengthy book, I read this to Miss M although she did enjoy sitting trying to read the pages herself.  The story follows the mystery of twelve princesses who go dancing each night through a secret passage under the castle.  Princes are invited to discover where they are disappearing to in order to win their hand in marriage and eventually one does.  A lovely story with a magical feel to it, we’ve really enjoyed reading this.  Miss M loves the secret staircase and the enchanted woods the princesses pass through each night.  Definitely a book to enjoy again and again that would suit girls of many ages and also includes a story CD, perfect for Miss M to listen to in her room.
