Discover children's books with Black characters!

About Black Children's Book Week


Black Children’s Book Week is a global celebration of Black children and the people who ensure Black children are represented in books and other children’s media.

The week is administered by Black Baby Books, a platform that makes it easier to discover children’s books with Black characters.

We invite everyone to join us in our inaugural celebration: parents, guardians, authors, illustrators, publishers, educators, librarians, business people, community advocates, and other advocates for Black children.

Join the celebration! Black Children’s Book Week will start every year on the last Sunday in February.
