6 Must-Read Books for Kids During Black History Month

These are great books for you to read with your kids this month!

Shannon Hicks February 18, 2016

I love books. Ever since I became a teacher, I’ve bought and read children’s books like it’s my job (because it is!). I love how books foster closeness between adults and children and I appreciate how reading a story can initiate challenging topics of conversation in a non-threatening way. Lots of “Must Read” lists have 25, 50 or 100 books. That’s too many “musts” for me in one month. So I picked six must-read books for kids during Black History Month. Of course, all of these books are better when they are shared between a child and a caring adult. So buy them for your kids. And then read them with your kids.
