Black Children's Books & Authors

"Black children need to see their lives reflected in the books they read. If they don't, they won't feel welcome in the world of literature. The lives of African-Americans are rich and diverse, and the books our children read should reflect that."- Valerie Wilson Wesley

I Love You Too

Ziggy Marley…

Five-time Grammy Award-winner and reggae icon Ziggy Marley has penned a children’s book titled I Love You Too. Illustrated by Agnieszka Jatkowska, the book is based on the song “I Love You Too,” from his 2009 Grammy Award-winning children’s album Family Time.

“This book is close to my heart because it was a spontaneous exchange between me and my then 3 year old daughter Judah,” says Marley, son of legend Bob and Rita Marley. “It expresses something so true; it should be repeated as often as possible.”
