OurStory is a tool for kids, parents, educators, and librarians to discover diverse books. An interactive quiz helps you find the perfect book, and membership levels include access to exclusive content from authors and illustrators and materials that educators and librarians can incorporate into their curriculum and programming.
A story for every child. A reflection of every community.
OurStory is a book discovery tool that celebrates diversity and strives to include a wide array of titles with diverse content and by creators from marginalized communities.
