Summary
"Black History in the Pages of Children's Literature presents both an introduction to historical periods and an annotated bibliography of outstanding children's literature that can be used to introduce and teach the history of each period. These children's books provide stories and information that can help students develop a deeper understanding of the distinct history of African Americans within the encompassing history of America." "Rose Casement includes a complete historical timeframe from precolonization to the present, with chapters specifically covering the colonization of North America, the years of slavery, the Civil War and the Reconstruction, the role of African Americans in westward expansion, and the Jim Crow years, as well as contemporary stories that depict the present. Accompanying each chapter's bibliography are recommended grade levels for the books presented. A glossary of terms and an index are also provided for clarification and easy access to specific areas of study. Teachers, parents, librarians, and administrators who want to gain a greater understanding of Black history will find this book a valuable resource."--BOOK JACKET
