An approachable way to introduce young children to this important civil rights figure

Read Review
Tommy knows he wants to be an artist when he grows up. He can’t wait to get to school and have real art lessons. When Tommy gets to school and finds out that the art lessons are full of “rules”, he is surprised and dismayed. How the wise art teacher finds a way to give Tommy the freedom to create and stay within the “rules” makes a wonderfully perceptive picture book about growing up and keeping one’s individuality.

Tomie dePaola is the author and illustrator of many beloved books for children, including the Caldecott Honor Book Strega Nona. Fans of all ages will be pleased to hear that The Art Lesson is, in fact, based on the artist’s own experiences growing up, and offers a welcome glimpse into his past. This bright picture book is as covered with drawings as the walls of Tommy’s parents’ and grandparents’ houses, and sends an inspirational message to budding artists and individualists. Break out the crayons!

17. The ABCs of Black History: A Children’s Guide

by: Craig Thompson
Release date: Jan 10, 2005
Number of Pages: 32
Find in Library
Read Review
Just in time for Black History Month and every other month, too! Baltimore-based, black attorney Craig Thompson presents us with The ABCs of Black History. The ABCs celebrates 26 notable greats, past and present, like Booker T. Washington, Fannie Lou Hamer, Malcolm X, and Oprah Winfrey. A short and catchy rhyme accompanies each color-rich illustration of the historic figure. The ABCs recognizes lesser-known individuals who made their mark in our society, like Garret Morgan, inventor of the traffic light, and Lee Elder, the first black golfer invited to play in the Masters Tournament. Thompson wrote the book as a result of his fruitless search for children’s books after the birth of his daughter. He wanted cultural relevance, bright colors, and catchy rhymes. ?I wanted something that would be ideal for children of all ages,” says Thompson. ?But I also wanted to motivate them to know their history. So I combine vivid portraits with easy-to-remember lyrics from A to Z to motivate them to know their history.” The book isn’t just for black parents and their children. In fact, Thompson hopes that The ABCs will ?introduce children of all races to important people, places, and events in black history, while providing parents with the rich-color contrasts, illustrations, and rhyming patterns that they need for the proper development of their children.”
