Netflix has created a collection of twelve 5-minute episodes of celebrities reading children’s books. The featured books are by Black authors and they highlight the Black experience. The videos are available for free without a subscription on the Netflix Jr. YouTube. Here is the Netflix Bookmarks playlist.
Visit the Netflix Bookmarks website for links to additional resources, such as books and activities focused on concepts of identity, respect, justice, and action. The Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC) helped develop resources for this project, including the Supporting Diverse Communities Toolkit, #LookToLibraries, and ALSC booklists.
