Great Resource for Home Teaching/learning
Reviewed in the United States on January 13, 2017
This book is for every parent who has desired to teach their children African American history, but didn't know how to begin or what to do! This is just what I was looking for: a "textbook-like, activity book" that teaches African American history in a way children can understand!. Each section is brief but concise, with highlighted points for deeper study. I also like this book because it starts the history from Africa, not the Americas. It also presents a more positive side of Black history, while remaining true to history.
On the downside, I wish the author wrote about the Africans from Nigeria and the Ivory coast, along with the wonderful info about Ghana and Mali--being that so many African Americans have roots there. Lastly, I find the activities to be okay...haven't been inspired to do any of them yet . However, the text is worth it! I hope the author prints a second addition including key AA and events that have taken place since 2007.
Great investment for home teaching.
