Selected Books about the Afro-American for Very Young Children K-2.
Britton, Jean E.
The search for Afro-American books was launched to find books which would give black children a sense of dignity and self-respect for their heritage and which would help white children appreciate their fellow Americans. The shortage of such books is discussed. Criteria is given for selecting and for evaluating children's books, especially in reference to the books included in this bibliography. Both white and Afro-American authors are represented with 44 books of fiction, and 17 nonfiction books annotated. Each reference includes the name and address of the publisher and the price of the book. Fifteen bibliographies of children's books about Afro-Americans are listed. (DR)
