Best Children’s Books Featuring Black Authors and Illustrators πŸ“šπŸ“˜

πŸ“šπŸ“˜In my video today I am sharing with you my favorite black authors and illustrators of children’s books. I have read these books to my students over the years and they are loved by children of all colors and as you know, there is nothing better you can do for the kiddos in your life than to read aloud to them. These books will inform and encourage love and harmony to those around you. This is the purpose of my video, to encourage kindness and compassion in our world. I hope you enjoy them and hugs to you all, Mary. πŸ’ž
