Little Black Book Nook is a collective of resources including diverse book reviews, lesson plans, crafts, and professional development.

Hi, I’m Dolisha Mitchell, the creator and curator behind the Little Black Book Nook. I am a graduate of the University of South Carolina’s Master of Arts in Teaching program and a former teacher and social emotional learning coach. I am currently a training and curriculum specialist for an educational management company where finding quality children’s literature plays a huge role in my job.

For as long as I can remember I have loved books! I can still remember spending hours at the library as a child and being quite the book hoarder by age nine. I believe that reading diverse books promote empathy, understanding, and respect for others, while offering unique perspectives and information outside of our personal experiences. I hope that you find tons of resources to build your home and/or classroom libraries with diversity and inclusion in the forefront.
