Thank's for the great article. :)

You might like to check out Bayard's range of children's books.

In this month's issues StoryBox has Helen Oxenbury guest illustrating, DiscoveryBox has an Olympics Special and there are also some great Rainy Day Activities!

My kids seem to really be getting on with them well.

Thanks again for the great article!

I am sooooooooo broke. My last teaching job ended in June and my next one takes up in August. But you know what? I'm going to buy those books on the history of African American childrens' books! Thanks for the link!!
