Love the idea but it should have this.
I love the idea of this app. I actually do love finding books with people just like me in them because it’s nice seeing something that finally represents me and my life. But I honestly feel like it’ll be much better if we were able to read these books on this app instead of being taken to a place to get it. Like iBooks how you can just purchase the book digitally or just read it for free. I don’t mind buying a book it’s just when you download an app to read book you download a app to read book on your device not to be taken to a link that’ll tell you where you can buy the book. But above all lovely idea
Great app for young black and brown girls and boys!
This app has grown so much over the years and I’m so proud it has. It’s such a refreshing resource to introduce users to books written by writers/artists of color and that feature characters of color. I remember vividly the extreme effort my mom used to have to put in to find books like these for myself and my sisters growing up, because these are often not the popular children/YA books promoted by the mainstream. This would’ve been a welcome resource all those years ago and I definitely plan on continuing to use this app not just for myself, but for my future children as well.
We Needed This!
Thank you for this app. I struggle to sort through all of the book lists and even Goodreads to find books by/about people of color for my daughter. It’s also difficult to communicate all of those lists to my students in my courses. This has just made my life! If I can make two suggestions: 1) it would be nice to be able to search by topic and 2) it would also be nice to either create a list that stays on the app or connects to Goodreads. Thank you again! I’ll be sharing this app in all of my young adult and multicultural literature courses!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
