A few years ago Scott Woods was asked by a local TV station to suggest some books for children in honor of Black History Month. Being a Black librarian he relished the opportunity, but did point out that his offerings would avoid the typical fare of Black children’s books: boycotts, buses and basketball. We’ve picked up a few other hobbies since the 1960s, and there are hundreds of books to show for it. Here is his humble sampling of some just in time for Black History Month. 28 children’s picture books, most of them featuring Black children doing what all children do: play, make up stories, learn life lessons, and dream.
