With the gifting season in full swing, we think there’s no better gift you can give to a child than a great book that inspires. Below, we’ve got over 80 ideas, thanks to these incredible titles that tell the real-life stories of Black boundary-breakers—from well-known icons like Rosa Parks, Barack Obama, Ruby Bridges, and Beyoncé to lesser-known characters who have used their unique talents to shape our world. With more amazing Black History books for kids popping up every day (hallelujah!), we’ll be sure to add to this list throughout the months ahead. Also, once you settle on some titles (or 10!) that appeal to you most, we suggest researching Black-owned bookshops in your area or further afield to place your order.

For more stellar kids’ book roundups, check out these 50+ books featuring kids of color just being kids, 80+ Black children’s authors and 30 incredible Black illustrators, children’s books that spotlight LGBTQ+ characters, Latinx books for kids, books by and about Indigenous peoples, great books to give as giftstitles that boost self-esteem and empathy, and 20 awesome picture books without words.
