What I loved: This book covers so many topics, important people, and more, giving a great launching point to discussions about Black history. This would be perfect for classrooms (and, of course, at home) beginning to teach Black history, as there is so much information given throughout that could launch important discussions and further research. For instance, with S, children could look up these scientists to see what they did and find more Black scientists who have changed our lives. This alphabet book could spark even more learning and projects.
The writing is really beautiful with a great rhythm, and it rolls off the tongue perfectly. The illustrations are full page and really fantastic with lots of color and details that make them a delight to look through. The breadth of information contained in this alphabet book is really remarkable, and I would definitely recommend this book for beginning to explore Black history at home or at school.
Final verdict: With beautiful illustrations and a lyrical poem, THE ABCS OF BLACK HISTORY is a fantastic introduction to an important topic. Highly recommend picking this one up.
