10 Children books to learn about Black History #BlackHistory
This past weekend our family made a trip to our book store to add a few more books to our home library.
The hubs and I decided to pick out one bilingual book and one Black History book.
When we couldn't find the Black History display we called on an employee. The selection was less than 10 books half being too advance for preschooler or elementary aged child. I was disappointed.
We decided to put together our own list of children books to learn about Black History.
Below you will find preschool and elementary aged appropriate books to read to your child or read with your child.
In no particular order:
Henry's Freedom Box Back of the Bus
If a Bus could talk Martin's Big Words
Our children can soar D is for Drinking Gourd
We March An Apple for Harriet Tubman
Sit-In These Hands
While much of Black History is very hard to explain to children and still very hard to speak about we know that exposure is key. We hope this list sets you up to a great start. We look forward to adding many more of these titles to our home library.
