Funding Needed for Multicultural Books and Dolls

Double Dutch Girls

ATLANTA, GA (BlackNews.com) — In 2013, approximately 3% of published children’s books featured African-American characters. The numbers were also not favorable for Latinos or Asian characters. Children learn about themselves and the world around them through reading and play. And all children should be able to open a book and see themselves as the heroes and problem solvers in the stories they love and cherish. Double Dutch Dolls, and a small number of other emerging book and toy lines, share the commitment and responsibility of bringing this much-needed environment to children of color.

Double Dutch Dolls represent every girl. They are African-American, Hispanic, Biracial and Multiracial. And their diverse make-up, brought to life in lighthearted, entertaining, age-appropriate stories appeals to a segment of the population who is often overlooked. The company founder, K. Charles believes the Double Dutch Dolls have the power to foster positive self esteem in young girls and tweens of all hues, in addition to reinforcing the importance of encouraging children of color to develop a love of reading at a young age.

“If you reach children when they are young and find a way to instill a joy and passion for reading, they will carry that with them for a lifetime.” — K. Charles

The Double Dutch Dolls community recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to bring even more beautiful dolls and engaging books to little girls, everywhere. The campaign runs September 16th through October 21st and offers not only the opportunity to support a positive up and coming brand but also great rewards like dolls and books.
