   Name Director of Cultural DevelopmentCity of Pittsfield28 Renne AvenuePittsfield, Mass. 01201  Date Dear   Name ,My name is Richele Baburina, I am a new Pittsfield resident, mother of two young boys and aStallholder with Barefoot Books. I wanted to introduce Barefoot Books to you and waysstallholders are taking part in their communities.Barefoot’s mission, to “Celebrate art and story that opens the hearts and minds of children,” isapparent across our range of products and services. We are convinced that it's never too early tointroduce children to other cultures. We believe that children can appreciate high quality art, andenjoy the music and meaning of language from a very early age.To promote these values, we focus on themes that can open into group or adult-child discussions, performance, art sessions, dance routines and a lot more. Our products are intended to act asspringboards for children’s hearts and minds, helping them to express themselves with confidenceand to explore the world in new ways. For example, I offer storytelling using the “Whole Book”approach, developed by the Eric Carle Picture Book Museum in Amherst. This is an interactiveexperience where children are introduced to the picture book as an art form in a fun, playful way.We have a number of regional authors and artists, including Jane Yolen, Heidi E.Y. Stemple,Rebecca Guay, Maria Carluccio, Linda Wingerter, Laya Steinberg, Josepha Sherman, and CarolynCurtis. Barefoot Books are not found in the major chain-retail stores. Additionally, our books arefree from media tie-ins (no TV or movie characters) and our complementary products inspire achild's imagination. Our books encourage children to learn, imagine and broaden their horizons inall directions – musical, theatrical, environmental and cultural.I have included a catalog with some literature and a sample of books for you to discover.
