Stars of Children’s Literature: Black History Month (ages 6-12) [VIRTUAL—RSVP REQUIRED]
February 27 @ 14 h 00 min - 15 h 00 min
For ages 6-12
February marks Black History Month, and stories are just one of the many ways you can teach your kids about the accomplishments of black trailblazers. Let’s celebrate Black History Month by finding out more about literary and artistic figures from the 20th and 21st centuries! Then, show off your knowledge of children’s literature in our fun trivia quiz covering Newbery Medal winners, Coretta Scott King award winners, classic children’s books, past Library visitors, and more!
We encourage you to explore these resources (most recommended titles are available in the Library’s collections):
We Need Diverse Books strives to create a world in which all children can see themselves in the pages of a book.
The Diverse BookFinder is a comprehensive collection of children’s picture books featuring Black and Indigenous people and People of Color (BIPOC).
Brown Bookshelf is designed to push awareness of the myriad Black voices writing for young readers.
