I am pleased to be part of a virtual book tour for author Nancy I. Sanders. She has written many books and articles and her new book fits into Black History Month perfectly for children and teachers.
Nancy has written a wonderful book titled : America's Black Founders- Revolutionary Heroes and Early Leaders
This book is a fabulous resource for children and parents about some of America's African American leaders and heroes and their contributions to American history. The book tells the stories of men, women, soldiers, sailors, merchants, and doctors. It is an interesting mix of the history of community leaders and what it was like to live in those times.
The book includes 21 activities that can be explored. How would you like to write and publish a newspaper for your grade or craft a clay pot? Maybe you would like to design a flag or write a poem? There is even a recipe for pepper pot soup and firecakes. Now wouldn't your classmates like to sample some of that on a cold winter day?
