20 Must-Read Children's Books for Black History Month 2022!

There are a few things that have always been in short supply for me. I'm not talking about money or resources, but rather stories that feature protagonists who share my brown skin, black hair, and frizzy texture. This is why we created a book box subscription with books, gifts and toys that reflect the world we live in. It's the kind of box we wish we had when we were kids. We believe everyone deserves to be able to see themselves in a book, and we know that the children in your life will love reading these books. If you haven’t already please have a look in our online shop and try out one or more of the products or subscribe to our monthly book boxes which you can cancel at any moment.

We're always looking for books to read and recommend. The mix of what we read is a microcosm of the world's diversity. It’s time to share stories of kids from different cultural backgrounds, who are breaking the mold and going from princes to firefighters (and everything in between). I want to see more books like 'Dream Big, Little One and 'Change Sings' and so we hope you will enjoy the list we made of our 20 must-read children’s books throughout the year and especially during Black History Month (at the moment in the UK & The US). Which books do you recommend to read during (and throughout the year) Black History Month?
