My husband and I started Jambo Books because we were searching for high-quality books starring children of color in situations where children’s literature rarely places them – making friends, raising pets, loving grandparents and fighting dragons. We asked ourselves if our book collection reflected the values of inclusion and community that we’re trying to pass along to our kids. Where our collection fell short, we focused on finding high-quality books that gave our children a sense of the world we want them to live in – diverse, vibrant and kind. We’re excited to share those books with other children through Jambo. We are are passionate about helping parents raise children who won’t have to be taught to tolerate people who don’t look like them because they will expect and enjoy healthy inclusion.
Jambo Book Club subscribers receive 2-3 age appropriate books that feature children of color as the stars of their own stories. The books arrive in boxes decorated with art that also uplifts children of color. Subscribers can choose between five different boxes for children of every age group or for a family with kids of different ages. We serve children ages 0-13. A Jambo subscription box makes a great gift for children you love or for organizations like shelters or literacy programs that serve children.
