Latest reviews of We Read Too app for iPhone and iPad

Librarian app :)
Thank you for making it so much easier to support black writers and writers who writer about black children.
I wish I had a resource like this when I was younger to display books where I saw characters that looked like me. Its great to see that there are in fact so many titles out there for children of colour when visibility in a broad sense is so sparse. I cant wait to see the titles expand to include more YA and adult titles, and maybe even some comics. Great so far though!
Great app!
I only wish this was made sooner! What a relief to be able to find books featuring diverse characters. Imagine how resourceful this could be for young children too!
Love this app!
Its about time something like this came around! I only wish I had something like this when I was younger! Children of color read too! Kayas initiative to break the subgenre of books about children of color is groundbreaking. I cant wait to share this with my younger sisters and friends! Looking forward to seeing the new literature initiatives that are sparked after the creation of this app. Get it get it get it! Its more than worth it.
i love this app. as a literary resource for people of color, it is amazing.
