30 Books for Parents Raising a Black Male/Female Child


30 Books for Parents Raising a Black Male/Female Child

There are a great deal of resources to help parents
“teach” their children the necessary academic skills
in order to be successful in school. One of the programs
is “The Raising Him Alone Campaign” and its list of 30
Books for Parents raising a Black Male Child.

The books selected inspire, challenge, confuse and
stimulate the minds and hearts of parents raising
boys/girls in a “challenging” society.
The campaign realizes that raising a Black male/female
child can be both rewarding and difficult, there is help.

These are some resources that I shared months ago,
with summer here parents and their children can use
their time wisely, if encouraged and read this summer.
Looking at the “Adventures of Moxie Girl,” The Black
Superheroes and other local works, it is important
that children need to read more, and make
reading fun and enjoyable.

The third grade reading scores of our babies shows
a need for books in their hands and to be encouraged,
inspired and praised to motivate them.

Please share this list with other parents;
“If the village does not embrace learning and wisdom
what does that say about the future of the children?”
