My cousin Vicki met her husband in New York and married. I love him too and now, the most precious children- a girl and a boy growing up in California. What do you read to your children when they grow? Daddy is black and mommy is white. These children are the most beautiful part of both parents… I present the following post that was sent to me.
When I made the first of these lists back in 2016 I had no idea the places it would go: Libraries, schools and families all over the world continue to share it even now, and I am humbled by its reception. I’ve long threatened to do a sequel to that list, so here it is. Same old librarian, all new tricks. Same rules apply:
1) Titles that came out within the last ten years (or so).
2) A spread in the gender of the protagonists.
3) Shine light on typically ignored aspects of black life. Nothing against history, but we aren’t exactly hurting for books on slavery. We could do with some more books about fishing, owning pets, and generally any other hobby children have. (That said, this list caught a lot more history than the last one.)
The books are not ranked in any way. Creator(s) are noted: Author/Illustrator.
