Black History Month-

The Golden Pathway by Children's author, Donna M.McDine is a wonderful story to begin your celebration of Black History Month. This is a story of the pain of slavery and a young boy who tried to stop it. It is so heartwarming while being true to the history of slavery. It is an excellent choice for children at home or in the classroom to open the conversation about that piece of our history.

America's Black Founders is another excellent resource to use in the classroom. It has activities and recipes, history and biographical information to celebrate Black History Month. Author Nancy I. Sanders has done an excellent job engaging the reader while teaching valuable lessons from our history.
