Silly and Sweet Picture Books Featuring Black Characters
Many in the publishing industry think there is no market for books by storytellers of color that center Black children. At local and national bookstores, Black and Brown children are missing from the pages of most picture books. And when parents can find picture books with characters that look like their children, those books generally depict historical events or biographies. While these books are critically important, we believe that our kids also deserve great stories just for the sake of being a great story.
As parents raising Black children, we believe that every child deserves to find themselves in a book. A lifelong love of reading starts with silly and sweet picture books that are just fun to read.
That's why we carefully curate and deliver exceptional picture books that center Black characters, with a spotlight on story-tellers of color. Then we pair these books with toys, games, and activities to create an immersive experience, so that every book comes to life and feeds the reader's imagination. We hope you'll join our ALOMO community and start experiencing the joy that can be found by helping your children truly find themselves in their books.
