A celebration of childhood from an award-winning author, this upbeat day-in-the-life of a bunch of friends was inspired by the #BlackBoyJoy meme that spurred a movement.

From sunrise to sunset, a group of young Black boys joyously spend the day together as they live their best lives freely in their community. ­With confidence and a touch of swag, these friends do everything with one another: build a time machine, tend to the community garden, roleplay in the park, read, take a group selfie, and play basketball. With simple, spare text from celebrated author Carole Boston Weatherford and colorful, playful art from Reggie Brown capturing the pleasures of boyhood and friendship, Bros affirms the truth that Black boys deserve and are worthy of a childhood full of joy and free of risk, just as much as anyone. Timely and buoyant, it’s a story sure to be enjoyed by anyone who knows what it is to be surrounded by friends with a day of adventure ahead of you.

Bros is a perfect preschool/toddler book to shine a light on how amazing brown-skinned boys are. With just two words per page, this book delivers powerful affirmations for our youngest readers. I love that there are so many books out there shining a light on girl power but sometimes it is easy to forget that boys need to see themselves in a positive light surrounded by friends and enjoying fun activities too. I love that there is a boy in a wheelchair engaging in all the activities and a full member of the group of friends as well. The illustrations are bright and joyful filled with energetic boys smiling and being themselves. Overall, this is a great book promoting joyful affirming love for our boys that the youngest of readers can enjoy.
