FOR THE REVOLUTIONARY READER!
A social justice driven children's bookstore dedicated to critical literacy that promotes inclusivity and diversity.
How can we promote culturally responsive practices and ensure our babies are empowered citizens through the art of storytelling?
Rohi's Readery serves as a space to build community. To be seen. And to live your unapologetic truth! Where adults and children are co-constructors of learning and knowledge. We like to think of it as cultivating the genius that is already within us and our littlest ones! We provide live and virtual "Shades of Brown" read alouds, family literacy support, highlight authors and illustrators of the Global Majority, and ensure that every community member we come into contact with is heard. Communities that have been historically marginalized deserve spaces to honor, celebrate and acknowledge the history of the past and what's to come of the future.
