Yo! After the success of some of the other packs or care packs I decided it would be great to have one specifically for Black Boys encouraging them to read. I personally believe it is incredibly important to encourage these children (cis gender or trans boys) to discover a love for story and to read for fun so that when there is knowledge they wish to access books will be one of many options.

For the Black and Brown boys in your life this package is a heartfelt, meaningful gift! I purchased it for our school library. I am so grateful that Rob Trujillo has portrayed older boys reading and looking fly, it has been a quest to find artwork that honors my Black & Brown boy readers and the search is over thanks to Rob. The books will become part of our library collection.All of the items will give your boy a sense of pride & being seen as well as inspire him to read! Furqan's First Flaptop is a story every boy and his dad should read, it would make a wonderful Fathers Day Gift. Furqan decides he wants to have a big boy haircut but once he's at the barbershop he begins to worry about this change, his daddy answers all of his worries with reassurances and humor and never gets tired of Furqan's wonderings and questions.
I am so excited to give these packages to my sons for Christmas. They are 6 and 7 and getting more into reading, and I think this gift will further solidify their passion. Thank you!
As a Latinx librarian I appreciate creators investing time into art that reps my Latinx students and their families. These bookmarks are one of a kind and are printed on heavy paper, beatiful colors. ¡Muchísimas gracias, Rob! (This picture has a variety of Rob's Spanish items.)
As a children's librarian I stand with my students in believing and enlightening others that "Graphic Novels Are Books", this print will hang in the Graphic Novel Section of our school library as soon as the school year starts. The artwork is reminiscent of the graphic novel format and pops! Rob was careful when packaging so the print arrived in mint condition.
