Dear Friends and Family of St. Johns in the Wilderness,

We are pleased to introduce you to Barefoot Books, an award-winning children’s book publisher that we are very excited to be partnering with. Like you, we want the children in your life to develop a love of reading and an appreciation for the world’s many cultures. Barefoot’s emphasis on imagination, creativity, diversity and community will be a wonderful addition to our Sunday school and your family’s home.

St. Johns in the Wilderness Sunday school will be hosting a Barefoot Books Fundraiser, from which all proceeds will be used to buy kids furniture, floor cushions, toys, and supplies. We know you are going to love the beautifully illustrated and culturally diverse books that Barefoot has to offer.

A selection of books will be available at Burke Hall during coffee hour (and after coffee hour) on 11/18/12 for you to browse through at your leisure. Completed order forms will be due back by on 12/2/12. Please feel free to contact Regina Shea at 518-929-9661, or email her at soxgrl79@gmail.com if you have any questions.

Barefoot Books will also be available for purchase on the website www.barefootbythefalls.barefootbooks.com . Once you are on the website look for the St. Johns in the wilderness fundraiser and hit the support this event to start shopping.

We hope that you will participate in this fundraiser and take advantage of adding these vibrant, educational and fun books for the children in your life.
