Carter Reads the Newspaper by Deborah Hopkinson


LOVE LOVE LOVE this wonderful picture book about the history of Black History Month and its founder, Dr. Carter Woodson.

And, no, it’s not just for reading during BHM, because stories about BIPOC must be read all year long so we no longer assume a single narrative about oppressed groups of people. My kids are learning about Reconstruction and were fully engaged in Woodson’s story of courage and perseverance.
