Black History Month: Children's Books

My final list for Black History Month is of books for kids that teach them about historical events and people as well as culture.  These are all books that I have shared with my own kids (or plan to when they are older).

Henry's Freedom Box - Ellen Levine
Elijah of Buxton - Christopher Paul Curtis
The Kids Book of Black Canadian History - Rosemary Sadlier
Viola Desmond Won't Be Budged  - Jody Nyasha Warner
Up Home - Shauntay Grant
Anansi the Spider - Gerald McDermott
Martin's Big Words - Doreen Rapport
Through My Eyes - Ruby Bridges
The Patchwork Path - Bettye Stroud

What books do you love to read with your children and use to teach them about Black History?
