Books for Brown Skinned Kids

Here's the current list of books for brown skinned kids. There was great response on Instagram when I posted about searching for books. Thank you to everyone that commented and came with suggestions!

I've not added any books with images that I thought looked offensive.No, unfortunately I haven't read all these books. These books don't only focus on hair but are aimed for brown skinned children. If you have thoughts on the books listed please leave them in the comments below!

Over time I hope to add more books to this list. If you have suggestions on books I've missed, please leave a comment with the author and title of the book!
