The Black Experience, New and Noteworthy Children's Books

The books listed here are all inspirational and true.  They take the reader through lives that may seem like our own, but become extraordinary through the individual’s creativity or inventiveness, singular devotion to improving their lives and the lives of others, and or the individual’s supportive family and community.  Some have won recent national awards.  Some have been passed around a lot. Some are meant to be read aloud.  Some are visually stunning.  All are worth enjoying.
