Books & Resources for Black History Month

MotherReader has two great posts at ForeWord, Black History Month Picture Books and More Black History Month Picture Books, in which she provides recommendations for picture books to read during Black History Month:

Read Jules’ reviews of some great new books at 7-Imp in her post Good picture book biographies start here. She’s included images of some fabulous illustrations along with her reviews, too!

Check out Tricia’s post Teaching Resources—African History Month at The Miss Rumphius Effect.

Here’s a link to Andrea Davis Pinkney’s Celebration Time: Black History Month is here and there's a party goin' on, which appears in the February 2008 issue of School Library Journal.

Here’s a link to a post at the ESSL Children’s Literature Blog that presents selected books by notable African American authors: African American Children’s Writers.
