"Thank you for everything and my daughter has really enjoyed the books (Just for You - Girls). We read them together which she is starting to believe is a little treat.

"We have been happy customers of Brown Sugar & Spice for years, in fact, ever since our boys were toddlers, and they are now 20 and 22 years old. As a result of the quality African-American children's books we've purchased, filled with vibrant illustrations, positive stories and historical information, our boys' self-identity and confidence has only been enhanced."
Alice Dent, Michigan

Since then, a daughter was born into the family and Mrs. Dent continues to order African-American children's books from Brown Sugar & Spice.
She states, "Alicia's favorite African-American children's book is "Designed by God So I Must Be Special" which I ordered ten years ago for my first-born child and it has been handed down to all three children. I'm glad I purchased it and didn't wait because now it's out of print. So if you see an African-American children's book you love, get it and don't wait. The books are great. Brian cannot put down the "Tiger Woods" story and Brandon loves the "Black Pioneers of Science and Invention." We are very satisfied customers!"

About Brown Sugar & Spice Books

Selecting the "cream of the crop" of African-American children's books and true-to-life multicultural children's books about families around the world is our goal. Each multicultural children's book is carefully chosen by an experienced teacher for its historical and educational value.
Discriminating parents and teachers of children everywhere will find this multicultural children's book collection a valuable resource.The books are divided into two categories: multicultural books for young children (go to top left jhand click on "Children's Books") and Black History books for all ages. (click on "Black History Books")
The multicultural children's books reflect the cultural richness of the Asian, Native-American, Caribbean, African, Hispanic, African-American, and European-American communities.In addition, this collection includes early childhood books about basic concepts, nature and science, and special issues like childhood fears, divorce, death and disabilities. Take a look at your current collection of children's books. Count how many titles are about children of color showing real people doing real things.Many schools have a wealth of fairy and animal tales and books with fictitous characters, but a dearth of true stories about people of color.If your current children's book collection needs a little color, then let Brown Sugar & Spice add that extra spice to your multicultural children's book collection.

Most of our titles are factual accounts, chronicling significant events in the history of people of color. The authenticity of these multicultural accounts is most important. That's why we feel it's imperative for people to tell their own stories. Therefore, many of our children's books feature first-world people writing their own experiences.We also search for illustrations with ethnically authentic representations and positive images of people of color. These high standards make our multicultural children's book collection top-rated by our customers: teachers, librarians and parents.Besides the African-American children's books, multicultural children's books, Africa kit, gift baskets and videos, a wide range of multicultural services are offered: workshops for professional staff development, storytelling for schools and libraries, and book fundraisers. (Click on "Educational Services").Remember, our multicultural children's books are carefully hand-picked.
Each children's book has been critiqued by an experienced educator who fell in love with children's books many years ago at her African-American mother's knee and continues to be enthralled by the magnificent multicultural children's books now available about children of color.If you want your students at school or your children at home to learn to appreciate themselves and those from other ethnic groups, then the Brown Sugar & Spice multicultural and African-American children's book collection is for you.So come on in and browse a while. These multicultural children's books and resources are handpicked just for you - the discriminating teacher or parent.
