MiJa Books created this Top 10 Children’s Books List to educate our community on the books that are most popular when we are given a wider selection of books that depict us & our cultures.
MiJa Books is an independent, family-owned children’s bookstore and resource for diverse books. Our mission is to showcase children’s picture books that feature children of color on the front cover and as main characters. We believe representation matters and we have a vision of a more inclusive world that begins within the pages of the littlest books.
MiJa Books was created by the Reeds, an entrepreneurial wife-and-husband team. What started as a home library for their Afro-Latina daughter has turned into an online resource for others looking to diversify their children’s bookshelves. They want their daughter (and her future siblings!) to have shelves full of inclusive books with relatable and inspirational characters. And they hope MiJa Books helps make this possible for the children in your life as well. Both born and raised in Southern California, they are currently based in the “heart of screenland”, Culver City, CA, where they reside and operate their businesses.
