Bedtime Inspirational Stories celebrates the achievements of the amazing black heroes who have paved the way for future generations. Unfortunately, in today’s world, it can be a challenge to raise positive kids, as they are constantly bombarded with negative messages. More than ever, parents and teachers need to create a positive atmosphere for our children in order to help them believe in themselves. That’s why we’ve proudly created this inspiring audiobook, Bedtime Inspirational Stories: 50 Amazing Black People Who Changed the World, which highlights the achievements and stories of 50 notable women and men from the 18th century to today. Some were born slaves, some grew up in poverty, and some had physical or emotional challenges. Some were born many years ago, and some are still with us. The stories in the audiobook include those of political activists, scientists, artists, musicians, inventors, business people, Nobel Prize winners, and more. 

Every single one of these individuals featured in the audiobook overcame adversities and changed the world, building a way for others to live better lives. Each one worked hard and maintained self-confidence, even when others expressed doubt or said their dreams couldn’t be achieved. 

Children looking for inspiration will surely find it here. This fun and inspiring collection of influential stories provides 50 examples of strong, independent role models, all of whom had a profound impact on the world. Personal aspirations from today’s youth are also interspersed throughout the book, so that each story has its own life lesson alongside a positive message.

Disappointed

The author may not have done thorough enough research. The narrator performs with a lot of enthusiasm, but it doesn't make up for the superficial information and apocryphal quotes.

Wonderful in every way!!!

My children are in elementary school and middle school, and our whole family loves to listen to these stories together. Our littles are actually still and quite the whole time, and our 13 year old son says he loves listening to this because it makes him feel happy and inspired. It is a wonderful way to end our day together.

The challenges of surviving life‼️

I liked learning about my history that was Not taught me in school nor heard about through my lifetime. I loved their quotes for their lessons and challenges to survive and master through life to get to their success ‼️
An awesome book for young children to learn black history and receive encouragement to help them navigate through life.
