In honor of Black History Month, I thought I’d round up some wonderful children’s books that celebrate our country’s diversity and the African-American story. Our son Gabriel is predominantly black and as a family of color we are committed to honoring his heritage. I’ve spent a lot of time lately researching books for Gabriel’s library and today I thought I’d share some of our favorites with you. From Jackie Robinson to Rosa Parks, there are countless inspiring titles to chose from. Below, explore over 30 picture books starring black heroes/heroines to inspire children everywhere. I hope you find the perfect story for a little one you love.
The Snowy Day (one of my childhood favorites)
Stay tuned for more roundups of wonderful children’s books!
