Books By Teens

Young readers of color need to see themselves in books. Our teen tutors didn’t see enough of these books, so they created their own. These books show what teens can do when their creative powers are unleashed. Each author is a trained and experienced literacy tutor, and they set out to create books their students would love. Ages 5 – 8.
