Barefoot Books News!! Robin Hood

We are proud to share that Robin Hood has been
named to the New York Public Library’s Children’s
Books 2012: 100 Books for Reading and Sharing list!
This listing includes titles published within the year
that may have great appeal to NYPL’s many diverse
readers, ranging in age from birth through 6th grade.
With 7 categories, from Picture Books through
Folklore and on to Nonfiction, this is a small
sampling of the many books which NYPL librarians read and loved this
year.

The champion of the destitute and downtrodden rides again. Meet young Robin Hood before he becomes the hero of Sherwood Forest, and follow along with his band of merry men as his adventures become the stuff of legend. This lavishly illustrated picture book makes a wonderful gift title to complement Arthur of Albion and The Arabian Nights, and features nine tales including: “Robin Becomes an Outlaw,” “Robin Meets Little John,” “Robin and the Widow,” and “Robin’s Last Battle.”

“Lively dialogue and fast-paced action will keep (kids) engaged. Sure to attract new followers for a perennially popular hero.” –Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
