Celebrating Picture Book Black Voices

Summer vacation has arrived, which means there is so much time for reading! As a kid, one of my favorite summertime activities was an afternoon trip to the public library. No school or extracurriculars meant extra time to peruse the shelves to find the perfect stories to take home with me. Each week my stack looked quite different, as I loved (and still do love) finding books that expanded my worldview and showed perspectives outside my own.

In this blog post I wanted to amplify some wonderful picture books of 2024 by Black voices! Let these stories inspire you and your little reader to head to your local library/bookstore for a literary adventure of your own!
