As you know, February is Black History Month. If you’re looking for oodles and oodles of resources on anything from the Underground Railroad to Jackie Robinson, African American poetry to the Tuskegee Airmen, I recommend you check out this Reading Rocketspage.
You will find … more than a dozen video interviews with African American authors and illustrators of children’s books … lists and lists of recommended children’s books … links to numerous websites crammed with interesting information, interactive activities, sound and video clips hosted by groups such as National Geographic, The Library of Congress, The History Channel, and PBS
and oh so much more.
Actually, there’s an overwhelming amount of resources, but taken bit by bit you are sure to unearth some treasures just right for you and the kids in your life.
