A collection of favorite Picture Books by Black Authors and Illustrators.
Black History Month is a good time to bring some attention to all of the wonderful picture books by Black authors and illustrators. Of course, anytime is a good time to read them – not just in February!
This is not a comprehensive list of all the picture books by all the Black authors and illustrators, these are just some of our most favorites. I’ve included a wide variety of picture books on this list: books about Black joy, books about important figures in history, fairytales, playful books, and more.
If you want a shorter list to choose from, the first 10 books on this list are my very favorite. If you’re looking for more great books by Black authors, be sure to check these out too:
