Sand Castle Books

Sand Castle Books was established in March 2021, and is on a mission to create access to early literacy opportunities for young children. Specifically, aiming to create books that represent children of color because there is a huge disparity in representation. I believe that it is important to increase children’s awareness and acceptance of diversity at an early age. Family structures today are varied, and it is important that children have access to stories that are relatable.

“I purchased this book right off my 7yr old daughter’s kindle, I got the opportunity beforehand to read to both my kids. An 8-month-old boy included, being in the childcare profession and having read 100s of books I can confidently say, this one is kids and adult approved! Get you a copy ASAP as a small appreciation to all the wonderful “Daddies, Uncles and more”.. in your lives…”Oh my”! she did that, well worded,rhymes,short but definitely sweet.
