Booksweet is super excited to connect families with the Black Men Read Holiday Box! Lovingly curated by the BMR team, this Holiday Box brings stories from the African diaspora to our youngest readers.  

Plus, 100% of the proceeds from each BMR Holiday Box goes directly to Black Men Read, a local non-profit committed to celebrating Black men as storytellers and community leaders — and to diversifying libraries across Washtenaw county. 

The BMR Holiday Box is $40.00 and contains: 

  • A Kwanzaa Miracle, by Sharon Shavers Gayle. Illustrated by Frank Norfleet
  • I Got the Christmas Spirit, by Connie Schofield-Morrison. Illustrated by Frank Morrison 
  • The First Day of Winter, by Denise Fleming. 
  • Crystal Science Snow Experiment Set (grow your own snow crystals!)
  • Pop! Craft Stick Snowman
  • Black Men Read bookmark & pencil
