Feed Their Imagination With Books!

My family loves to read (anyone who knows me, knows that this is an understatement). Miss E goes to bed after two stories with at least four to five books to "read." Her brother at 18 months just started throwing a sofa pillow on the floor and snuggling down to look at books and pretend to read. So exciting! If you read to your child, you know the magic that happens and the value books bring to your child's development. Plus, I enjoy reading classics from my childhood and finding new "classics" from this generation of writers. I just love books (like my mother and brother), and I enjoy passing this love on to my own children.

Kobold Toys is introducing an entire new book section to our website, and WE ARE EXCITED! We are featuring the wonderful titles from Barefoot Books. Barefoot Books began with two mothers who wanted their children to have books that would feed the imagination, while instilling a respect for diversity and a love of the planet. Today, they are a world-wide community of writers, artists, storytellers, musicians, and others who are committed to providing timeless stories and captivating art that can help children become happy, engaged members of a global society.

If you love gifting books (and in our house aunts, uncles, Papas, and even Santa and the Easter Bunny know books are the gift of choice), Kobold Toys is offering "Bag of Books" gift sets in various themes- from baby to pirates! Here are some of our far. These collections are wonderful gifts for any occasion.

Barefoot best-sellers The Animal Boogie, The Journey Home from Grandpa’s, and The Farmyard Jamboree — all with singalong CDs — are packaged in an eco-friendly, reusable green shopper tote with gift tag to personalize. (Age 2+)

Kobold Toys hopes you are as excited as we are about this new line of books. By reading aloud to your child, you will be sharing one of life's most valuable gifts and opening all kinds of doors for the future. Plus who doesn't love snuggling down with your little ones for any reason?!
