Come Here, Cleo ~ A Barefoot Book Review

Come Here Cleo
Written by: Stella Blackstone
Illustrated by: Caroline Mockford
Read Alone: Ages 4-7
Read Together: Ages 0-4
Board Book; Full-color illustrations; 24pp;
6.5 x 6.5 inches

A board book that exemplifies minimalism at its finest! 
One sentence for each page.
One subject and one verb.
One thought throughout the whole book!
This book is about Cleo, the Cat and her movements in and around her surroundings. It is a catchy board book that is very easy to remember. From the moment Cleo wakes up to the time Cleo starts to play and bounce around the yard, every reader will absolutely remember the actions that Cleo, the Cat is doing throughout the book.
The illustrations perfectly fit the idea of minimalism.
Caroline Mockford’s brush strokes on watercolor are simple yet conveys a brilliant rendition of the main character Cleo, an orange-striped Cat. Her choice of colorful background on each sturdy page of the book, adds a more striking appeal to the young reader.
Great book for readers who are learning about simple action words!

Barefoot Books International Conference 2008 ~ Telling Stories

I do not even know where to start about this wonderful experience I’ve had at the Barefoot Books International Conference ~ Telling Stories that happened from August 1 – 3 at the Royal Sonesta Hotel in Cambridge, MA. But there is a beginning and there is an end. I’d like to break down my post into a few segmented articles to tell everybody what I’ve learned and I’ve seen about the Barefoot Books!

 

The few posts you will see in the succeeding pages will be the following:

1. Nancy Traversy’s message

2. The Barefoot Books Vision and Opportunity

3. Lessons I’ve learned from the Conference about the Barefoot Books Business

and of course!

4. Pictures from the Conference

There were a lot of things that happened during the three-day conference, which include the following schedule of activities:

Friday, August 1 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM – there was a welcome reception at the Barefoot Books Retail Store in Cambridge. I wasn’t able to go there but I heard from fellow stallholders who were able to attend the cocktail here at our flagship store, there were some raffle draws, announcement of winners (by the way, I won a signed book by Stella Blackstone! one of my daughter’s favorite’s authors ~ how lucky!) some won signed books and others won $25 gift certificates!

Saturday, August 2 from 9:00 AM to 5:30 PM – this is the most important day of the conference and where I made sure I was there! Just like everybody else who were there, we met and saw Nancy Traversy, the co-founder of Barefoot Books, the great and hard-working staff of the Barefoot Books who answered all our questions regarding shipping, new releases, payment information, etc (everything possible that takes place behind the scene) and of course the friendly Stallholders from all over the US and the UK! It was so much fun! As part of the program, one of the authors/illustrators Maria Carluccio of Skip Through the Seasons and Sounds About Town, was our mystery author guest and shared to us her techniques ~ and allowed us to chat with her about her work. 

The day concluded with a poolside barbecue party at Nancy’s house in Concord, MA.

Sunday, August 3 from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM – there was a duck tour for the family members as well as the Stallholders!

There was so much  fun and a lot of new information about our Barefoot Books business and what are in store for us in the future. Nancy Travery mentioned about the opening (soft launch) of the Barefoot Books store inFAO Schwarz this October 2nd and the full day celebration will happen on October 4th, with possible celebrities attending the Opening Day! Nancy also talked about how despite the economic crisis the US is experiencing right now that our company, Barefoot Books continues to very stable and will continue to succeed because what we offer is unique,  and we all believe that everybody’s success comes with perseverance!

I left the conference with so much knowledge and so much enthusiasm about building a future with Barefoot Books!
