Fortunately, over the last few years, we have seen much more diversity in literature, specifically when it comes to Black youth. As we know, young readers need to see people who look like them represented in positive ways. The lack of representation in books can have a significant impact on youth. 

When Black youth see themselves reflected in the books they read, they may resonate and relate more deeply with the material. Connecting to the text can help increase self-esteem and the amount of information absorbed and retained by the child.

Below are my top ten money books with Black representation for youth.

A big thank you to author Rob Phalan who has featured or interviewed these books and authors on his Instagram feed. His book M is for Money is another great money resource for kids!
