If You're Happy And You Know It! Free Song Download!

A new favorite children's book in our house is one of Barefoot Books' more recent titles If You're Happy And You Know It! by Anna McQuinn with sing-a-long CD, sung by Susan Reed. This lively book puts a fresh and multicultural spin on the traditional preschool tune. Illustrations by Sophie Fatus depict children from all over the world as you sing and dance through the movements (great for an early lesson on following instructions). This book also includes two full page spreads: one showing the children saying "hello" in 36 different languages (the CD will help you with pronunciation), the second naming all the children in the book and giving their country of origin. My kids have had a lot of fun flipping around the book and playing matching games; for example, they discovered that Mehmet from Turkey says "Merhaba" and is on the "Touch Your Nose" page. Illustrations also show many villages full of plants and animals. I really couldn't ask for a better introduction to global cultures!

Now for a limited time, Barefoot Books is offering a Free Download of the song. Enjoy!

Also a reminder that we still have a few days left in our 20% off Sale!

It's time to think about Father's Day! Share the gift of reading with your child and select from the great Barefoot Books on Special Offer this month! Sale titles this month honor our dads and grandfathers with great stories and colorful illustrations.

For the hero in your life, choose Grandfather Mountain. A collection of stories from around the world about wise men and strong role models.

If you are going on a summer road trip with a little one, they will surely enjoy A Journey Home from Grandpa's. This sing along book that highlights colors and vehicles is great inspiration for I-spy games on the road.

Shopping with Dad is a silly adventure about Dad at the grocery store and a great lesson learned about accepting responsibility and handling a problem.

And what would Father's Day be without a little yoga? My Daddy is a Pretzel is also on sale so you can share a new skill with your child in a fun and approachable way for beginners! If you are already a Yogi, try the Yoga Pretzel Activity Deck or Yoga Planet Activity Deck for more poses and games! (50 poses in each deck!)
