In preparation for Black History Month (BHM), the second part of our series feature book selections intended for middle grade readers. Nonfiction titles published for the target audience of 8-12 year-olds contain broader vocabulary and more text, delving deeper into the subject—even though they may still fall into the picture book category. Sometimes the age and book type distinctions can be a bit confusing. But, thankfully, many books have crossover qualities, appealing to readers younger or older than the core group. The first of the 35 books listed is a biography of Carter G. Woodson, “The Father of Black History.” Part 1 has information about Carter G. Woodson. For additional titles, see our M. L. King post and Tonya Bolden author spotlight. History books for young adult readers will conclude our BHM series.
