African-American Read-In Week

We are excited to be hosting guest readers from the community for our African-American Read-In all of this week. I've selected books by African-American authors and illustrators, many of them Coretta Scott King Award honors and winners, for our guests to read in the classrooms. There are just SO many wonderful books to share by and about African-Americans that I've had a rotating display up on our library shelves all month long too.

Here are also some links to a few of my favorite African-American authors' and illustrators' websites:
Finally, check out The Brown Bookshelf blog for their 28 Days Later project, celebrating African-American children's literature during Black History Month.

For my students and teachers, reading African-American literature is a part of daily life, but it's nice to highlight it with special events during this month too. Enjoy!
