  3. I’d love to have my grandkids read ALL these books, but the 4 I choose are: Aunt Harriet’s Underground Railroad in the Sky, Follow the Drinking Gourd, I Survived The Battle of Gettysburg, 1863, and Wedding Drama.

    Our area (Rochester NY) has several homes that were stops on the Underground Railroad.

  4. Those are some really hard choices to choose from! But I would choose Aunt Harriet’s Underground Railroad in the Sky, Brothers of the Knight, Ron’s Big Mission and The Prince of Fenway. I shared this on linkedin and facebook. though I could not find any book reviews, when I clicked on the pics they only showed the cover enlarged.

  5. When Aunt Harriet’s Underground Railroad wasn’t in my backpack as a child, it was in my hands. I loved the way Faith Ringgold situated the protagonists in history, by allowing them to experience the Underground Railroad as 20th century children. This perspective allows people like me to relate to the sentiments of awe of our ancestor Harriet Tubman, and the ultimate realization of the sacrifices our people made to escape slavery. This is a great introduction to history for young readers, and other readers who might be unfamiliar with the significance of Harriet Tubman. Also the illustrations are beautiful, as they highlight the beauty of the night during which Aunt Harriet led her people.

    I usually give individual book recommendations, but I’d rather celebrate by honoring those who providing information about and access to Black History books to children.

  8. This is a great way to connect children to black history. Books like these will help children understand the importance of historical events. This is a perfect way to explore black history for the younger generation. I choose: I am Harriet Tubman, Thank you Dr. Martin Luthor King Jr., Ruth and the green book and Henry’s Freedom Box. Thank you.

  9. I have to agree with gardensofreading in that this is a great introduction to History for our children. They are all amazing reads and the choice is hard but I’d go with I Survived Gettysburg 1863, I Am Harriet Tubman,The Prince Of Fenway Park and Aunt Harriet’s Undergrond Railroad. Thanks for the chance to win these books.
