More Information About The Young Dreamers’ Bookstore: 

The Young Dreamers’ Bookstore is a mobile book retail startup founded in 2022 for young children and their families. We provide a broad array of inspiring children book titles to “meet kids at their dreams.” We proudly feature books that herald protagonists of African descent from across the globe and/or are written by talented and culturally diverse writers. We do this to normalize cultural inclusion, while also sparking children’s imagination and self-efficacy. We appeal to the growing community of teachers, parents, and community leaders who wish to ignite young people’s ability to create dreams that are personally fulfilling and socially relevant.
