It’s been ages since I’ve posted about a new blog. There are many great new blogs out there, really too many to even decide which ones to mention. But this time it’s something special. I am very excited to point out a new website and blog, The Brown Bookshelf, featuring the best in African-American children’s literature.
YES! YES! YES!
If I could have picked out the one area in kids’ lit that needed its own website and a group of five dynamic authors and illustrators to keep it up this is it. Right now the blog is focusing on introducing the writers and their perspectives, but will be featuring great books by and about African-Americans. (At least I think so. I was so excited, I didn’t even finish reading their site before I posted about it.)
Thanks to Liz at Tea Cozy for the heads-up about this fantastic resource and about their signed book giveaway. Signed book giveaway? Yes, go to the site to find out more.
