Once you learn to read, you will be forever free.
— Frederick Douglass
Valerie was a little afraid
when she started school
last year. She wanted to
learn to read but was not
sure she would be able to.
Well, this year Valerie is in
the 1st grade and reads
well above her grade
level. You go Valerie!"

Many children of color seldom read for pleasure.
This happens because they simply can not relate to the books they are given to read! Well
no more! The books you find on this site are especially selected because African American
Children will relate to the content of the book.
The pictures in these books look like our children and their friends.
The stories in these books remind children of issues and problems that they have
seen or have had to solve.
The values of the books listed here mirror the values of our households
  WeeBeeBooks presents books  that promote the positive values of our Culture.
If you are tired of your retail outlets offering you a small selection of “black as an
after thought” books then shop here, where YOU represent the majority!  
Wee Bee Books is dedicated to addressing the unmet need in the African-
American Community for quality books that promote the positive values of our
modern families.
At Wee Bee Books we understand that:

Ultimately, it is a parent’s
responsibility to insure that their
children can read. At WeeBee Books
we know that you don’t always have
time to visit the book store and when
you do, it can be very difficult to
quickly select a book that is right for
you or your family member.

Often the books that are hyped on
mass media channels are not the
books we want in our homes or for
our families.

So what to do?

You have come to the right place!

We are dedicated to selecting the
books that encourage and excite our
children to read.

We identify books for every member
of the family. Books that inspire,
educate and entertain with pictures
and situations that are familiar and
identifiable to our families. Order
today with confidence from WeeBee
Books.
