Library of Congress Subject Heading

Children's literature, American--African American authors; Children's literature; Education, Elementary; African Americans in literature; Blacks in literature


This study's objective, therefore, is to present an annotated list of useful and immediately relevant resource materials which includes Black characters, written for children in kindergarten through the sixth grade levels. The list includes publishers' names, prices, and a brief commentary on each title. Although the bibliography contains critical analysis, there has been no attempt to weigh the literary merits of each volume. Often the suitability of a given work will depend on how a teacher wants to use it, or the available purchase fund. However, materials worthy of a place in every school and library are marked "highly recommended".
