February is Black History Month, and story time is just one of the many occasions when you can teach your kids about the accomplishments of black pioneers and trailblazers. Creating an encouraging environment for kid's to learn tolerance and diversity is crucial in making a positive impact for future generations. Reading is a great way for both children and parents to explore these complicated subjects in a comfortable environment together.
One of the many ways families can celebrate Black History Month is by sharing the literary works of Black authors and stories about Black role models within their home. This month (and every month), why not celebrate the achievements of incredible scientists, politicians, civil rights activists, artists, and other African-American mentors by including some of these inspiring and educational books as part of your families story time?
