Black History Month

It's the final week of Black History Month. I was in a school last week in Columbus. The fourth graders lined the hallways while the kindergardeners marched through them to the music of "The Battle Hymn of the Republic" piped over the loud speakers. It was a delightful celebration.

If you're looking for some of the best books written by people of color, truck on over to The Brown Bookshelf. I wish I had discovered this blog earlier in the month. It's a treasure trove of interviews with well-known and not so well-known authors, complete with images of their books. A great resource.

Three more weeks until spring. I'm counting!
