Why do we celebrate/appreciate Black History Month? Because Black History is American History. End of story. So for Black History Month, I’ve picked up a few new books and compiled a list of books for when P gets older.
is one of my FAVORITE books on Penny’s shelf right now. Vashti Harrison’s illustrations are so sweet, and the biographies of the women in black history included range from the well known to ones even mom and dad will learn about while reading. The biographies themselves are geared towards an age group slightly only than Penelope, but she loves looking at the illustrations and sits through a few biographies at a time. This book will definitely grow with her, and be well loved as she ages.
