There are so many wonderful picture books that feature strong, Black males as the main protagonist. Little boys (or girls) can read about heroes from the past and present who have emerged as role models for all children. They can explore nonfiction books about famous male inventors who have contributed to society. Or they can enjoy stories about everyday kids just being kids. Whatever they’re in the mood to read, either on their own or with a grown-up assisting, the one thing I can bet is they’ll be able to find a book to fit!
Below I’ve rounded up a list of picture books that feature African-American boy protagonists with first names from A to Z. Some are popular names that you see often and others are unique like my name. Is your name or your son’s name listed here? What other books would you add to this list? Feel free to share in the comments.
