Librarian app :)

Thank you for making it so much easier to support black writers and writers who writer about black children.

Great!

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.

amazing

i love this app. as a literary resource for people of color, it is amazing.

Great Resource!

This is such a significant, timely app that will make a great impact in the lives of young people. Well done!

Fabulous

A great resource for those in the education field!

#relevant!

According to research done by the Cooperative Childrens Book Center (CCBC) in 2012, out of 3600 children books, 93% were about white children and only 7% were about children of color. When I was compiling a summer reading list for elementary grade students this would have been a great resource! It is difficult to find resources for books about children of color even online, try googling "books for students of color". We need to address this problem! Thank you so much for app and please keep adding more books.

Wonderful

This is the app Ive been waiting for, I wish this had been around when I was a teen. Thank you for this!

I love it!

If only this were around when I was younger :/ but I love the entire message behind this app I hope it reaches the top of the charts

Truly Needed

This amazing app is exactly what I want to show my kids. Finally an excellent app that provides whats missing in literary society!

NECESSARY FOR ALL

I will definitely use this with my students as I look for a wider and more diverse body of literature to use as an urban educator. Thank you Kaya for providing this invaluable tool!

Wonderful to feel included-one suggestion

Im so excited to see this!! If you havent already look into Daniel Black books. May I suggest linking the books to black owned book stores instead of Amazon-much more of an impact if we could put our money where our mouth is!

Transformational!

I cant wait to share this app with my staff at Ranson IB MS in Charlotte, NC!

Such a great reference

The list of books by authors of color for readers of color is growing and it makes me so happy. This is definitely a great app to start creating a reading list. It gives exposure to books that are overshadowed by the mainly white cast in other books.

Great App

What an awesome app, the diversity of this application makes reading for all children that much better. Great job Kaya, and loved you on Another Round

Yes!

I heard about this app through a podcast (Books on the Night Stand). As a teacher, Im always looking for resources to help me incorporate multi-cultural and multi-ethnic literature into my classroom library. This is going to be a great help! Good work, Kaya!

my TBR list just grew like woah

Found this app through a friend, and am thoroughly delighted. I love YA, and I now have so many new books to read. Looking forward to when there are more adult titles included as well!

Good app

The app is nice and has a lot of very good books, but it would be nice if we could actually read each book from the app. I’m disappointed that I can’t read any of the books on here.

Love the concept!

Really love the concept! Need it broken out in to some genres so I’m not overwhelmed by a long list of books. It would also benefit from some expansion beyond kids and YA as well. Other than that I’m really enjoying this app! Would recommend!

Good beginning app; with few additions, it would be a great app!

I love the app, for it contains a large list of books, and many of the books I haven’t read. I do wish, however, that they were separated by genre. That would make it easier for us to suggest more titles and to find more books that meet our interests.

Love it

Makes it so easy to find amazing books for my niece!

great app with lots of information

love that this app promotes literacy for children of color and white children tired of reading about the same characters over and over again

Great App!!

I am so happy that someone has thought about how important it is to expose our youth to diversity through literature. I do wish there was a save button or option, so when someone comes across a book they'd like to read/buy there will be a reference list.

Great start!

I really like the idea behind this app! Super helpful way to find books that let my kids see themselves on the page! Would love to see the app develop more: - browsing by picture (book cover) would be a great option - would allow it to feel more like browsing at the library and be a much quicker way to see what books my kid might want to read (as opposed to having to click each title separately) - breaking out the "genres" label into actual genres, not just age grouping - reading level suggestions and/or correlations like another reviewer mentioned - ability to add keywords to book descriptions to search out books about certain topics

Great App

Surprised no one thought of this sooner. Smooth and fluid app. Very helpful

quality

this is a great idea, nice app, very important 10/10

Add a literacy leveler for teachers

Love the app. As a teacher I would highly recommend adding a Literacy Leveler. Each book has a literacy level which helps to ensure each child is reading a book at their appropriate reading level (so a 3rd grader doesn't get a kindergarten or 5th reading level book). Please check out the reading correlation charts for Fountas and Pinell as most books in classrooms are leveled according to their criteria. It would be a HUGE help for teachers like me whose dream is to diversify libraries AND get appropriate books into the hands of readers. Thanks!

Quick resource!

Great way to quickly recommend books on the go! Maybe create a way to share to our Amazon carts? Either way, it's a great way to share great titles with kids, parents and teachers!

Love it! More genres!

I LOVE that this exists, and the list of books is quality, too!! So into this already. It would be awesome to include adult books too, though, and to split what's there already into more genres. Having just children's/YA doesn't narrow down the selection much for people browsing. And it's really important for adults to see themselves in books too!

Excellent Tool

This app is an excellent tool for teachers and parents who are looking to expand their knowledge of diverse books to share with children. The summaries are good and picture support of the books is very helpful.

Brilliant idea!

I absolutely love and support this app. What an amazing idea. I truly believe diverse literature is paramount to a more understanding and accepting society. The more children see diverse characters in diverse circumstances, the better. I've been searching for a way to locate books based on cultural representation for quite some time, and I'm thrilled to have discovered this app! Kudos.

No books

I don't see the books. Just summaries

Great app! Looking fwd to updates!

Wonderful and necessary resource. Crossing fingers for updates providing a direct link to purchase text...or a related books section in the margins.

An awesome resource!

A confidence booster for the black and minority youth.

Great resource, but a suggestion

I really suggest further categorizing by author name and by genre (Fantasy/sci fi/ romance/thriller/etc.). Please please consider this

I really love this app

I can't find anything else like it and it's great.

Hasn't worked!

Seen a post on Facebook about this app. I downloaded it and haven't been able to read a book yet. All it constantly says is image loading. I've tried on my cellphone network and the wifi at my home and it still won't work.

Great Concept

Would love to be able to read it on my iPhone but great start! Looking forward to reading!

The best

Amazing !!

👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾✊🏾

We read and develop Apps!! My daughter thanks you for such a great idea! Thank you for helping Devine who we are!

I love this idea

I can't wait to see the progression of this app

We read too!!

Love this ! Outstanding job Kayla!

LOVEE ITT

Must have! My kids love it!

Great app!!!

Great App about us!!!!!

Amazing

I'm so glad you did this. You truly made something I can use on a daily basis. I'm going to spread this to everyone I know. This app is so important and so necessary as a black man to read things by other black authors.

Great App

Great App but none of the images of the books are loading. All them say image loading. I like to see the covers of the books please. Will change my rating when that is fixed

Amazing concept!

This app has such an amazing concept. I found out about it through an Instagram post and had to find it. I'm looking forward to the future development of the app where more genres are included, more book images are available, and the user is able to purchase the book directly from iBooks or another source. Great job!

Thank You!!

I have always felt we need a app like this. Glad it was finally made

Thank you!

So happy for this much needed app, always felt there should we some resource like this...thank you! I would also like if the app showed how many pages the book has and what age group the book falls in because I'm interested in chapter books for my elementary students.

A Great Variety of books

I luv this app because it list books that tells stories about people of color. I wish the app could put books in categories such as ethnicity or subject, etc. My son father is from Trinidad and this app has a children book about a trini story. Now I can get this book for my son. Thank so much for this app

Great Resource!

I love this app because it's a great resource for finding texts that portray the cultural and ethnic landscape of our country. I just wondered if it's possible to diversify the way we can search for texts. For example, organize in groups: alphabetically by title, author; book content--action, moral stories, etc. I think this would make it easier to navigate and find what one is searching for. Thanks!
