Children’s Author Says ‘Pay What You Can’ for His Bestselling Diverse Books for Kids

Today, bestselling author Bobby Basil announced parents can buy his three diverse book series for kids — Pedro & PeteTexting with History, and Travel Bug — for the price they can afford at

Pedro & Pete helps kids learn Spanish with interactive activity books and a companion "Spanish to English" podcast, which ranks as a top education podcast for kids in over 20 countries. Texting with History follows text conversations between curious kid Alex and inspiring figures from Black History, Women's History, and Hispanic Heritage like Frida Kahlo and Harriet Tubman. And interstellar alien Travel Bug explores cultures around the world from Peru down south all the way to Iceland up north.

Amazon awarded Basil the KDP Select All Star prize as an author who has been read the most on its platform. The Theodore Roosevelt Association recognized him as a national finalist for his book "Texting with Theodore Roosevelt." And he became another national finalist in Sundance Institute's New Voices Lab for his virtual reality musical experience for kids.

Basil realized the hundreds of dollars it would cost to buy all his kids' books online was more than most families could afford. So he created his own e-commerce store to offer printable ebook versions. Parents pay what they can, and the price starts at a dollar.

"I want my prices to be as inclusive as the themes in my books," asserted Basil. "Cost shouldn't stop parents from teaching their children about diversity. Diversity for kids is priceless."

Bobby Basil Books for Kids publishes bestselling read-aloud books that entertain and educate preschool, kindergarten, and elementary school early readers. Basil has also written children's stories for companies including Disney, Nickelodeon, and Amazon Studios. To learn more about Bobby Basil's diversity books, visit
