Did you know that only 5% of children's books published in 2015 featured a child of color? Why does this matter? Well I'm glad you asked! When kids do not see themselves or their experiences in the books that they read, they have trouble actualizing their dreams and aspirations. But KaZoom Kids Books is one step closer to giving all kids the opportunity to see themselves represented in the stories that they read.
KaZoom Kids Books is a new start up that has created a digital library of multicultural children's books. The books use sight, sound, motion and animation to engage kids and empower them to be their own heroes. KaZoom is a subscription based business (the Netflix of children's books) that gives you access to their entire digital library of books for a small annual fee.
This start up is committed to helping children grow up proud! And after a successful Kickstarter campaign, KaZoom is on a mission to bring greater diversity to children's books. We have joined the movement and you should be too!
