A List of Children's Books That Celebrate Black Boys

A recent study carried out by the Cooperative Children's Book Center at the University of Winsconsin found that less than 3% of children's books in 2013 featured black characters. Everyone knows that books trasmit values. It is therefore important for black boys to see themselves positively in their favourite books.
