Books for African American boys
My son is 7 and starting to read chapter books. He is black and most of the books he gets from the library in his school are about white kids. He likes them but comments on the fact that the kids are white. I know he would love some books in which a black boy is the main character, we had them for when he was younger but for some reason don’t have them now.
Does anyone have suggestions? The book should not be about being black, or about being adopted, just about some adventure, or a boy with his dog, or something about school, etc.
Thanks for any suggestions you may have!
