30 Black Children Books for Every Kid’s Library by Sopha Rush

30 Black Children Books for Every Kid’s Library by Sopha Rush

@sopharush  shares her library with us. “Representation matters & it starts in the home. As we were creating the library for our boys, I knew I wanted books that looked like them. Books they could read & identify with. I know for me growing up, I didn’t have books that looked like me. I struggled with my self identity most of my childhood & I didn’t want my boys to experience the same. So I put together a list of books that would be so beneficial for every kid’s library, whether you’re black or white.” Shop all these books here & purchase Beautiful Beautiful Me here.
