To provide the very best children’s books on the market that promote positive images and stories about African American culture and history

Help Fight Book Banning!

In recent times, school districts have increasingly faced efforts to ban the books used in classrooms and school libraries. To respond to these book bans, we have partnered with IPES and created a program to provide these books to households free of charge to parents and students. Join Us


The owner is so friendly. She was eager to engage the kids in the store. She made great suggestions for the gifts I needed. If you're not in St. Louis, PLEASE visit the on-line store for books. Representation is so important. Let your children see themselves in the books they read.

Great bookstore where I could purchase books that represent the students I serve. Great variety of topics and subjects for all ages and genders. If you are in search of African American books for kids this is the place.

Love the location and the selection of literature! Books are for all ages, they have posters, dolls, history books...something for everyone! As soon as the kids got in the car they were reading!
