Welcome to Barefoot with Maria!

Welcome to my little world! I am very excited to have you here!

I started this blog in February 2018 as an inspiration to the company that I am currently affiliated with, Barefoot Books.  I am currently a Barefoot Books Ambassador, and let me tell you something: I love it!!

My journey with Barefoot Books started one day during my maternity leave, and after having my precious down time from the kids, I was browsing through the internet, when I stumbled across a video on YouTube about Barefoot Books. My curiosity got the better of me, and I went to their homepage to find out more about them. My mind was blown! I totally fell in love with the colors, the message that every book portrays, everything that they offer to build self-esteem on children, and how they portray the message of diversity, inclusivity, and acceptance. The teacher and mommy in me fell in love.

We currently live in a time where these positive messages are very much needed. We need to reinstall values and morals into our children, and what better way to do this than a book.

My mission in life is to teach both my children to be kind, big-hearted, respectful, and to fall in love with reading.

My blog will mostly focus on how I integrate these awesome books into my children’s lives, motherhood and parenting a child with special needs. My goal is for you to find this site useful in your day-to-day activities and that the experiences that I have had would work for you, or at least provide you some guidance in your life.

Thank you for making me part of your world, and I hope to help you find the answers that you are looking for.
