Every night, my mom would read to me and my brothers. My youngest brother loved animals, so he always chose the “animal books” for her to read. This introduced me to  a world of facts and also watered my love for stories.

Black Children's Books: Our Favorite Stories For African American Youngsters

Black Children's Books You Must Share With Your Youngster

This Earth friendly book is most often seen around the celebration of Earth day. Its story line is based on the Lorax trying to save his area of trees and grassland. He tries to get others to understand the importance of reducing, reusing, and recycling. I would read this book to grades three through six. I think it contains a lesson for everyone about going green!
