Celebrate Pride this June with our limited edition Pride Boxes! You'll choose the age group for your Pride Box, and we'll send you some of our favorite LGBTQ+ books from previous OurShelves boxes. Supplies are limited, so reserve your box today. This makes a great end-of-year gift for teachers or schools. Any questions? Need a multi-age box? Please contact us at

Our books are mindfully and lovingly chosen by our Curation Team for children ages 0-8 years old. 

  • Cherish these expert-curated books selected for children ages 0-2 (Sunshine), ages 2-5 (Rainbow), or ages 5-8 (Treehouse).
  • Affirm your values of equity, inclusion, social justice, love, and yes, fun and joy, while sharing high-quality children's books with the special children in your world.
  • This Pride Box includes books that feature LGBTQ+ kids and families, including kids and families that challenge traditional gender norms.
  • Feel pride knowing you're exercising your consumer power to be counted in support of LGBTQ+ children's books. OurShelves advocates for the many LGBTQ+ and other diverse books still needed, in part by proving to publishers the significant, yet largely under-estimated, audience for such books.
  • Our Curation Team members who review your books share expertise from librarianship, teaching, early childhood development, psychology, racial and other identity bias, and parenting. All Curation Team members -- and their children -- have the lived experience of being under-represented in children's books.
  • Free shipping.

OurShelves is a quarterly diverse book box for children.

We curate high-quality children’s books that feature racially and ethnically diverse, LGBTQ+, disabled, feminist, and other characters and families currently under-represented in kids’ books.

We advocate for the many more diverse books still needed, in part by proving the significant audience for such books through our growing membership.

Cherish and share

Cherish these special stories. Share them throughout your community. Also, share with us who and what types of stories are still missing on your shelves, which we can incorporate into our advocacy.

The characters our children meet in their books matter.

Our books feature LGBTQ+, racially and ethnically diverse, disabled, feminist, and other traditionally under-represented characters and families in children’s books.
