We’ve gathered some recent stellar children’s literature by Black authors, from early readers to chapter books. How about celebrating Black History Month by reading a title by a Black author that is new to you? And, keep reading Black books all year long . . . there are so great books!
Black books matter. From learning to read to reading to learn, all kids need books that reflects their own lived experience, as well as books that depict a multiplicity of cultures, skin colors, and points of view. Read diverse books with your kids! Thank you!
We are finally seeing some early reader series being published that feature culturally authentic Black protagonists. We share a few great new series, plus a fun stand alone from the Elephant & Piggie Like Reading series.
From fantasy to humor to realistic fiction, something for every reader! So many great writers here! The first few titles on the list are just right for early elementary age readers.
Middle school stories . . . exploring identity, confronting injustice, embarking on otherworldly adventures, surviving school and friendship drama and more.
