Picture Book Wednesday: Black Joy Books

Yes, it's Black History Month and it's great to celebrate heroes and heroines of the past and of today. However, it's just as important for kiddos to read books about Black Joy and slice of life books. 

Here are a few of those:

Based on the Christmas song - 12 days of Christmas - but this is not a Christmas story. This is really a story for every holiday and for those with a big family.

I love all the food and all the family. It's a lot of people for one family (compared to mine which is small).  The illustrations are fun and that ending! 


These two books are very similar - both focused on showcasing all the awesome things the future is going to bring. 

There's so much encouragement and love in these books. Both feature STEAM futures - both showcase famous Black heroines and heroes. Both are very inspiring and lovely books to share.

One father shares moments of history with his son - sharing with him the attributes of each historical figure.

This is a sweet story of role models and sharing inspiration of others - sharing dreams and hopes for the future. And then letting go to make your own path.

A bedtime book filled with different families - and different Motown songs.

A sweet bedtime story with charming illustrations that you can't help but sing.
