We hope you enjoy a sampling of our illustrations that celebrate expressions of love and friendship—our way of wishing you a sweet Valentine’s Day from all of us at Barefoot Books.

Take a moment to appreciate the friendships that have shaped you and your treasured memories.

Learn to love each other’s differences.

Don’t assume someone knows you love them. Tell them how you feel. Show them how much they mean to you.

Get caught up in a special moment.
