How to Purchase Books

Our website is meant to serve as a resource for teachers to locate titles for their school and classroom libraries. Our goal is to get greater numbers of culturally relevant texts into children's hands. Kids Like Us is a not-for-profit reseller of children's literature, but we also encourage you to work with local booksellers and your school district's distributors to ensure they purchase these titles and make them available.


Currently, we keep a small inventory of titles on hand that are paired with professional development trainings. If you are having difficulty finding these titles, we may be able to help. Proceeds from Kids Like Us book sales help support book giveaways, teacher grants, and community literacy programs.


For Schools and Non-Profit Organizations

There are several ways to access the KLU collection:

1. Contact us at to arrange for Kids Like Us to provide professional development or technical support for your school. All trainings include books for teachers. We can develop custom book sets and teaching materials tailored to your school or organization's needs.

2. Contact us at for support on text selection or developing a custom collection.

3. Create your own purchase order list by selecting "add to purchase list" from any book or set page. Insist that your distributor order and carry these titles if they are not currently on hand.
