Books of the Month!

Celebrate Black History with these books!

Baby Young, Gifted, and Black by Jamia Wilson and Andrea Pippins (Wide Eyed Editions, ages 0-2): Meet icons of color from past and present in this baby board book celebration of inspirational achievement. A collection of positive, yet simple, affirmations to encourage the next generation. Highlighting the talent of Black leaders and changemakers from around the world, young dreamers will develop confidence, self-assurance, and self-belief. This is the perfect book for babies and toddlers! I love the mirror at the end of the book!

Lift Every Voice and Change: A Celebration of Black Leaders and the Words that Inspire Generations by Charnaie Gordon and Aeron Cargill (becker&mayer Kids!, ages 7-12): Powerful sound clips from twelve Black leaders amplified by bold illustrations and background facts illuminate pivotal moments of Black history in America. A succinct profile of the speaker alongside an explanation of the significance of the quote and moment provides the context for each audio clip. A vibrant illustration of the speaker completes the picture. This is definitely a powerful book for ages 7-12.
