Enjoy these Must-Read picture books for Black History Month!
February is Black History Month, a time celebrate the achievements of African Americans and learn about both the famous and not-as-well-known people who changed the face of history.
I can tell you from experience that most kids don't read many books about history until they're older.
I believe this is due to the fact that many of these stories are biographies or non-fiction books which are shelved in an area of the library that most kids don't walk through during the first decade of their life (kids tend to stay in the "picture book" and "early reader" sections when they choose books).
As parents & educators, it's our job to help introduce a variety of literature into our children's lives and with February being both Black History Month & Library Lovers Month, it's the perfect opportunity to do just that!
Enjoy these multicultural STEM picture books that are perfect for preschool and elementary girls & boys who love to tinker, create, invent and engineer!
You know us, we LOVE sharing great books for kids!
And since we also love sharing STEM Activities for kids too, I thought we'd combine these two BIG global ideas - diverse children's books and STEM activities -- into a truely AMAZING list of books that will inspire both kids and adults!
Inspire your kids to learn about geography & cultures from around the world with these awesome books and mapping activities they'll love!
I so enjoy teaching my kids about places around the world -- the people, landmarks and traditions. It's important that they increase their global awareness and become 'world-literate' as they grow.
One of our most read book lists is 30 Pictures Books about Countries Around the World (honestly, it was one of the ones we loved putting together too ;) and I received a number of requests for chapter books that focus on maps and world cultures so we went on the hunt for some AMAZING book series that are perfect to use as read alouds or for older kids & teens to read on their own!
Use this great list of picture books about countries & cities around the world to raise a global citizen!
I don't know when it started but I've always been fascinated with maps, globes and learning about places around the world.
I love to see how people across the globe eat, live and spend their day. These everyday activities are a fun way to expose kids to cultures and traditions outside of their own.
But alas, globe-trotting just doesn't come that easy -- even for a traveling family like ours. It's expensive and takes quite a bit of time and planning.
So for years, I've made a conscious effort to introduce my kids to different countries and cultures thorough books, videos and some fun hands-on activities we can do close to home.
