Brownish Books is a Black-owned business. Recognizing the importance of children seeing themselves in the books they read, Brownish Books was created with the goal of adding books to the shelves of children who need to see themselves represented in a story to feel connected, validated, heard and seen, and to foster a love for reading!
Equally important is the need for children to see and start to understand that the world is made up of many different types of people and to become comfortable seeing someone who looks or lives differently than they do.
Now, more than ever, there is a need for empathy and kindness. Books that feature characters with a variety of cultural experiences teach young readers about the diverse world in which they live and teaches them to have empathy for others.
At Brownish Books, we focus on curating children’s books featuring Black and Brown characters. Brownish Books also seeks to spotlight Black and Brown authors and illustrators who are often overlooked by mainstream publications.
We are committed to staying up-to-date with new releases, taking on the heavy lifting of researching diverse and inclusive children's books, and then delivering to your door beautifully wrapped and bundled books. Each book is individually wrapped because reading is a gift. Give the gift of a diverse library today!
