10 Black History Books for Kids #BlackHistory

10 children books to learn about Black History

This past weekend our family made a trip to our book store to add a few more books to our home library.
The hubs and I decided to pick out one bilingual book and one Black History book.

When we couldn’t find the Black History display we called on an employee. The selection was less than 10 books half being too advance for preschooler or elementary aged child. I was disappointed.

We decided to put together our own list of children books to learn about Black History.
Below you will find preschool and elementary aged appropriate books to read to your child or read with your child.

In no particular order:

Henry’s Freedom Box               Back of the Bus

If a Bus could talk                    Martin’s Big Words

Our children can soar            D is for Drinking Gourd

We March                         An Apple for Harriet Tubman

Sit-In                                         These Hands

While much of  Black History is very hard to explain to children  and still very hard to speak about we know that exposure is key. We hope this list sets you up to a great start. We look forward to adding many more of these titles to our home library.
