Black Joy by Black Authors Scratch Off Posters
Curated by Spit Honey and Writing To Change The Narrative
The Original Black Joy by Black Authors Scratch Off Poster was started by Aundrea Tabbs-Smith. She wanted to create something to keep her children engaged and excited about reading but was unable to find something that included the books that she reads in her home.
This is not just a poster. It is a bucket list. It makes reading time interactive.
Once you read one of the picture books on the list, use a penny to scratch off the gold square under the title to reveal the book's cover!
The Black Joy by Black Authors Scratch Off Poster II has been curated by Aundrea Tabbs-Smith and Nyasha Williams and is full of children's picture books written by Black authors.
*Posters will ship at the end of August*
Some of the titles included:
I Affirm Me by Nyasha Williams
Sunday Dinner by Angela Shante
Zara's Big Messy Day (That Turned Out Okay) by Rebekah Borucki
and 45 more titles!
Size 12 x 16
