Zoobean, makes it easier to find remarkable books for kids. Books on Zoobean are cyrated and recommended by a team of parents and catalogued with tags and filters that really matter to the families that read them.
Zoobean was born out of frustration as described by Jordan (Zoobean Chief Mum)
“At the time, we could not easily find books that told stories about new experiences and featured a brother and sister and a multiracial family. In stores, books were organized by genre, author, or very broad themes that weren’t really relevant for us,” said Jordan, our Chief Mom. “We also searched many popular shopping websites, but the information was overwhelming and impersonal. In the end, we were frustrated and empty-handed. The same frustration might have resulted looking for books about bullying and teasing, the death of a pet, or finding e-books featuring Latino characters. Parents and educators rely on remarkable books to help connect children to their worlds and we decided to create Zoobean to address a need that benefits families and helps children imagine and achieve anything.”
We love their values and the way they articulate them:
● Love: We know firsthand that a family’s love is boundless. It inspires mothers, fathers, and relatives alike to want the best for their children, other families’ children, and their communities.
● Inclusion: We believe parents and loved ones who can easily choose from a diverse set of stories will be better equipped to help their children express their full selves while feeling a sense of belonging to a larger community.
● Remarkability: We’re still not sure if we’ve made up a word with this one, but we’re cetain we know what we mean when we say it. At Zoobean, we commit to offering the best information and resources available. We want to equip parents and loved ones like you with great books for your children, so they can thrive—to the most remarkable levels imaginable!
We love that every month, they donate to a featured charity focused on youth literacy.
And we love that when you select at random ‘Love’ from one of their many categories you get four books – ‘Ish’, ‘Regards to the Man in the Moon’, ‘Zoom’ and ‘The Three Ninja Pigs’.
