Around these parts we’re always on the look out for more books with characters of color. While Le Kid and I visit our local Barnes & Noble often to see what’s new, sometimes it’s difficult to find books with Black characters amid the overflowing shelves. We’ve created our own list of 35 books for boys, but we always want more things to read.


If you don’t have a lot of time to hang out at the bookstore or the library, there’s a new book club that wants to make it super easy for your kiddo to find something culturally relevant to read.

Founded by Dr. Hamidah Sharif-Harris, the Little Buzz Book Club hand-selects African, Caribbean and African American themed children’s books and sends them to members each and every month.

The Little Buzz Book Club offers subscriptions for preschoolers, young readers, and independent readers, and also offers goodies like a t-shits and reading pillows.

I haven’t signed up for the Little Buzz Book Club, but a friend (actually two) told me to check it out, so it might be something I look into for next year.

Head over to the Little Buzz Book Club site to learn more, or check out our list of 35 books for boys, here.

Happy reading!
