I’m linking to Nonfiction Picture Book Wednesday, hosted by Kid Lit Frenzy and all sharing non-fiction texts. It’s a first time, but wanted to share this wonderful book.
Be sure to visit Kid Lit Frenzy and see what other nonfiction books are shared this week!
Harlem’s Little Blackbird – written by Renee Watson, pictures by
Born to former slaves, Florence Mills was one of the successful and famous entertainers before and during the Harlem Renaissance. She began being popular as a very young girl, from her singing and her kindnesses and sticking up both for her rights, and for others who needed support. Some of her experiences will be good entries into discussion about courage and doing the right thing! The book adds another inspiring biography about someone we have previously known little. The illustrations by Christian Robinson fill the page with lovely folk-style paintings.
