It’s the first day of Black History month and it is never too early to teach your kids about diversity, inclusion and Black leaders who changed the world. Their impact goes as far as the peanut butter on their sandwiches created by George Washington Carver to Katherine Johnson who’s mathematics helped send NASA’s first orbital mission to space.
All aspects of American history has been kissed by Black creators, engineers, inventors and brilliant minds.
While teaching topics about race and injustice can be difficult, I love teaching about successes and triumphs within that Black community that permeate through our daily lives.
Here are my top 10 favorite books for toddlers/preschoolers that teach Black culture and pillars of the Black community:
10 | We’re Different. We’re the Same.
9 | Dream Big Little One
8 | Little Legends: Bold Men in Black History
7 | Little Legends: Bold Women in Black History
6 | When God Made You
5 | Skin Like Mine
4 | Have You Thanked an Inventor Today?
3 | Black Heroes : 51 Inspiring People from Ancient Africa to Modern-Day USA
2 | American Trailblazers : 50 Remarkable People Who Shaped US History
1 | The ABCs of Black History
I hope you enjoy sharing these books with your little ones as much as I have enjoyed sharing them with Logan. It is so important from an early age to share the accomplishments of the Black community, history and to start the conversations on equality, racism and history.
