Next month, our Barefoot World Atlas app turns one year old. What a year it has been! The app has received phenomenal acclaim from children, adults, and mainstream media alike. It’s now available in English, Spanish, Catalan and French with more languages available soon. We have won a whole passel of awards and recognition, including Time Magazine’s Top 25 Apps for Kids, Apple® Editor’s Choice, and even Apple® App of the Week. Wired calls it “tactile, responsive, immersive, and educational.” And we couldn’t agree more!


Today, we are delighted to share some very exciting news with you: our Barefoot World Atlas app for iPad has officially launched and been named Apple’s App of the Week in the US and UK! Many members of the Barefoot Books team have worked tirelessly for months on this groundbreaking project—and their hard work has definitely paid off. Created in collaboration with Touch Press, developers of six previous Apps of the Week, the Barefoot World Atlas app is an interactive globe that enables children to explore the many wonders of planet Earth. Check out Touch Press’s video featuring Nick Crane, author of the Barefoot Books World Atlas and narrator of the app, and read on to learn the Barefoot Books App Team’s favorite elements of this wonderful new chapter in our story!
