Black Books for Kids



I hope that your week has been awesome.  Today, I would like to share my new website with you.

I created Black Books for Kids to fill the need for a central online marketplace for affordable African American children’s books.  

As a parent and home school educator, I am always searching for books.  Personally, I love books from all cultures.  Some of my favorite authors are Octavia Butler, Ray Bradbury, Kurt Vonnegut, Chitra Divakaruni, and Ama Ata Aidoo.  While I believe that children should also be exposed to literature of all cultures, I find that it is a little more difficult to locate books from Africana cultures to fill a child’s library.  The books are out there.  They just require extensive time and energy to uncover.

With Black Books for Kids, the footwork is already done for you.  The prices are great, because we are powered by Amazon.  Everything is divided into age groups and genres for easy navigation.  Best of all, I am sharing reading resources, articles, and videos regularly.

Please visit whenever you need to purchase books for your child or teen.  Check back often, because new books are posted frequently.  If there is a book that you do not see listed, send me an email at and I will include it.

Thank you for your support.

In unity,

Nikala Asante
