Children's Literature by Black Authors
Children's Literature by Black Authors: A Culturally Responsive Approach to Reading Instruction (A Resource Guide for Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 5 Teachers) consists of over 100 children's books written by Black authors. Each book is listed as a mentor text for specific reading comprehension skills such as finding the main idea, sequencing, determining cause and effect, and making inferences/drawing conclusions. Each book's description lists the following components: full title, author(s), illustrator, publisher, genre, summary, theme, interest level and reading age. Users of this resource guide will find alphabetized listings of authors and the books in the back of this resource guide.
