Great place to find books about and for Black & Brown babies. Great selection. Found books here that I was planning to purchase online and I was happy to buy them here and support a local business. The owner is very friendly and helpful; she is willing to go above and beyond to get you the title you want.

This is my go to book store for all the children in my life. I love that the bookstore is black owned and most of their books are by black authors. Their shipping is wicked fast. Their prices are extremely resonante. They have a loyal customer!

I have bought several books from here. The staff are so sweet and helpful. They helped me to acquire what I came for and suggested so many new titles that were related. I always have a great experience when I shop here. They're always going to be my first choice, even with audible titles.

Monica Henry

Wonderful experience during every vist. The staff is always friendly and very knowledgeable as if they've dissected each book in the store. They'll keep getting our business... if you can't get to the store, order on their website... Learned that tonight!
