From classrooms teaching Black History Month to parents reading with their own children, these black history books for kids will inspire your kids and expand their world.
America celebrates Black History Month every February.
But I encourage you to read these books throughout the year.
Whether you’re a school teacher or a parent, by weaving these books into your classrooms or lives throughout the year, you send a strong message to your children that black history matters.
