As a kid, there weren’t many black characters in books that I could connect with. I don’t remember seeing a face like mine in the classic tales I read. But the children today have a bigger selection of books to choose from with all shades to identify with. You might wonder where to find these books for your children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and students. Well look no more.
EYESEEME is here to supply you with books that represent our black/brown children. This online bookstore mission is “to be a resource to parents, teachers, and schools in providing the very best children’s books on the market that promote positive images and stories about African American culture and history.” The owners of EYESEEME are parents of 4 children and created this bookstore based on raising their “gifted” children. They created this resource to “bridge the cultural divide, so that African American children can benefit from exposure to literature that respectfully mirrors themselves, their culture, and their families.
EYESEEME carries thousands of African American children’s books in-store and online. They are dedicated to delivering books for our children that support their mission. Their books are suitable for all ages from baby/toddler to high school. EYESEEME books meet core curriculum standards and offer a unique and diverse product line that fosters “educational excellence” and “promotes educational family fun.” EYESEEME also offers book fairs, African American Reading Mentors, Literacy and African history and culture presentations, and more.
