In June 2013, my husband and I received the greatest gift we could ever imagine – the birth of our son Elias. Given my very fond memories of the books I read as a kid, I (like any freshly minted tiger mom) started collecting books for our son’s library even before he was born. As I began collecting book titles, however, I quickly realized that there were relatively few easily accessible children’s books that featured illustrations of African-American kids and families! After asking friends and family how they had handled this challenge with their own kids it became clear to me that we were not the only family with this issue.


So for my son’s first birthday, I’ve created Eli’s Book Club, a book service that provides age-appropriate, self-affirming books for African-American children – but I need your help! In lieu of birthday gifts, I’m asking all of our friends and family to donate to the pilot launch of Eli’s Book Club. Your donations will assist with the costs of procuring, packaging & shipping books to families selected for the pilot.


I’m super excited about the launch of Eli’s Book Club and I hope you’ll join me in this journey!


Your favorite tiger mom,
