Fewer than 5% of children's books released in 2015 featured an African American or a person of color as a main character. According to the Cooperative Children's Book Center, when kids don't see themselves or their experiences in the stories they read during their formative years, they struggle with actualizing their dreams and aspirations. Well... not on our watch. We are committed to inspiring children and helping them grow proud.
Subscription Based Digital Library
The Netflix of interactive digital books! All books use sight, sound and animation to engage readers. Characters are diverse and the stories reflect diverse communities and experiences. For an annual fee, subscribers have access to the entire digital library. Kazoom aims to turn reading time into an adventure!
We partnered with the Harlem School of the Arts to bring our interactive digital stories to life and got ourselves featured in the New York Times!
KaZoom Kids Gear
When kids visit the Pop Up KaZoom Palooza, they will not only get to read about characters who look like them, but they can also take away the characters' encouraging words and wear them over their hearts.
Little Hollowed Libraries
These branded little libraries will be placed in Hyde Park and Bronzeville neighborhoods where parents will receive a discount on KaZoom's Digital Library membership. All books donated by the community will go to local children shelters.
