Latest version We Read Too: 3.1.0

After Parse shut down, We Read Toos backend was switched to mLab with a Parse Server running on Heroku. The image files for the book covers were lost after Parse officially shut down a few weeks ago. With this new update, the images for the book covers are back.

Thank you for making it so much easier to support black writers and writers who writer about black children.


Thank you!


I wish I had a resource like this when I was younger to display books where I saw characters that looked like me. Its great to see that there are in fact so many titles out there for children of colour when visibility in a broad sense is so sparse. I cant wait to see the titles expand to include more YA and adult titles, and maybe even some comics. Great so far though!

Great app!

I only wish this was made sooner! What a relief to be able to find books featuring diverse characters. Imagine how resourceful this could be for young children too!

Love this app!

Its about time something like this came around! I only wish I had something like this when I was younger! Children of color read too! Kayas initiative to break the subgenre of books about children of color is groundbreaking. I cant wait to share this with my younger sisters and friends! Looking forward to seeing the new literature initiatives that are sparked after the creation of this app. Get it get it get it! Its more than worth it.


i love this app. as a literary resource for people of color, it is amazing.

Great Resource!

This is such a significant, timely app that will make a great impact in the lives of young people. Well done!
