Any book that helps children form a habit of reading, that makes reading a deep and continuing need, is good for them.
– Maya Angelou, author and poet
BOOKS & STUFF started as a brick and mortar shop in 2015. Now exclusively online, I continue to sell multicultural, Afrocentric, books and gifts. The ultimate goal was, and still is, to promote the enjoyment of reading...particularly to children of color. And to make available quality books, at affordable prices, available to parents for their home libraries.
WHY HOME LIBRARIES ARE IMPORTANT:
Illiteracy keeps people trapped in a cycle of poverty and subjugation, limiting life choices and making it difficult to achieve social mobility.
LITERACY IS POWER OVER ONE'S OWN LIFE!
Children who grow-up surrounded by books and other reading materials have an advantage in school and life, regardless of their family income or their parents' education. Having their own books motivates your child to read more often.
