Just Like Me! Book Box


We are absolutely in love with this subscription service and believe that every parent of color should purchase this subscription for their children. According to their website, “The Just Like Me! Book Box was built on the foundation of exposing children of color to literature, characters, authors and stories that are reflective of them.” Founder Tamara McNeil believes that everybody should read black children’s literature. CEOMOM couldn’t agree more. Black children’s literature is a part of American culture and should be celebrated by all.
