Parents who have budding readers at home have likely already queued up Netflix's just-for-kids show, Bookmarks: Celebrating Black Voices. A great option for little ones who can never seem to get enough of story time, each five-minute episode centres on a children's book written by a Black author.
According to a press release, the show is meant to give "families a toolset to start meaningful conversations with kids about difficult topics through short-form book-based content." Of course, Netflix enlisted the help of several celebrities, like Lupita Nyong'o, Common, Tiffany Haddish, Jill Scott, Marsai Martin, Kendrick Sampson, Grace Byers, Caleb McLaughlin, Karamo Brown, Misty Copeland, and Jacqueline Woodson to read aloud to kids.
And after watching all of the episodes already, it's safe to say we want to revisit each book with our preschoolers before bed every night. Any parent in the same boat can scroll ahead to find the full list of books featured on Bookmarks: Celebrating Black Voices.
