What are the popular African American themed children's picture books? Is it the text or illustrations which makes it popular?
Thank you, Kyra
There is Nikki Grimes "Dyamonde Daniel" series. She also does poetry, but I am not a big poetry fan in general.
I recently read a young adult book, Zahrah the Windseeker by Nnedi Okorafor. I enjoyed it and plan to read other books by her.
I just realized you wanted PICTURE books, lol. I see what I have at home to recommend.
I know I've seen plenty of others, but I can't recall any titles, and none of them jump out at me.
The Boy who harnessed the wind
It is an autobiography. Here is the author's blog:
HERE's a list of the Coretta Scott King award winner. The illustrator award is usually a picture book, but not always for toddlers.
HERE's a list that might be helpful from the Carnegie Library.
HERE's a list from Amazon. It's a mixed list of chapter books and picture books.
Thanks. I'm familiar with the Coretta Scott King award, and we have a few of them, but usually it's not quite what I'm looking for; my kid's two, and what I want is "kids who happen to be black doing kid things", rather than "This is a book that teachers will read to their classes during Black History Month" and the latter seems to be what wins the awards. The Carnegie Library list is more what I'm looking for - we've found a lot of those but not all of them, so thank you.
