Pretty Brown Book Club (Kids)

October 28, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm


Hyatt Place Blue Ash

FREE

The Pretty Brown Book Club is a Cincinnati book club for kids preschool to second grade to read and interact with friends who look like them.

 

Pretty Brown Book Club was created by a 5-year-old girl (Ayda) and her mom (Victoria) to encourage reading in the African American community and to connect with other brown families. Your children will love this Cincinnati book club for kids. 

 

Please join this mom and daughter duo for a fun, free and educational book club meeting. During the October meeting, they’ll be reading Shake Dem Halloween Bones by W. Nikola-Lisa and will have a fun dance party and crafts too! Kids between preschool and 2nd grade are encouraged to come and wear Halloween costumes – the best costume gets a prize! Each Pretty Brown Book Club meeting will be held the last Sunday of every month at the same time but at various locations.

 

Children are welcome to bring in their own books and read solo or listen to the pre-chosen book being read aloud. There will be fun and educational discussions after each book is read.

 

How it all got started…
While living in a predominantly white neighborhood north of Downtown Cincinnati with not many people who they identified with, Victoria (mom) was interested in finding ways to keep Ayda (daughter) connected with other pretty brown girls and boys.

 

After researching clubs and organizations that promoted literacy, Victoria could not find anything in the black community which is how Pretty Brown Book Club was brought to life. Ayda has always had a love for books, games and arts/crafts and wanted to share her passion with other pretty brown girls and boys, too.
