A Super List of Children's Books That Celebrate Black Girls
Here at Bino and Fino, we are always on the look out for things that will help nurture young minds. Finding children's books for kids that have a black girl as the protagonist or the main character can be tricky. This is because of the fact that there is very little visibility of black & brown kids in the world of children's books. This is changing with campaigns such as We Need Diverse Books calling for more diversity in children's books
Below is a list of children books that we love and feel celebrate the beauty & uniqueness of black girls.
