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.
