Jambo Book Club sends your child two gorgeous high-quality books each month that stars a child of color in a key role.
The stories show that people of color can star in stories that aren’t historical or cultural in focus. The typical story arc is more “Maria adopts a dog” or “Evan and friends get pizza after baseball.”
The books come in gorgeous packaging and are addressed to your child, who will be excited to receive a package in the mail.
Jambo Book Club makes it easy for you to share the gift of reading with a child.
Represent your World
Finding children’s books with characters that more accurately represent the rich diversity of modern America is hard. In fact, a recent university study found that only 14% of children’s books published in 2015 had a nonwhite main character.
Today’s America is diverse and growing more so by the day.
