Happy Birthday, Martin Luther King
Happy Birthday, Martin Luther King Grade K (copyright 1993) - Jean Marzollo

This books illustrates Martin Luther King Jr's peaceful fight for freedom and change. It provides the timeline of his entire life - birth to death and all of the impacts he had during the Civil Rights Movement. This book would be a great starting point to introducing the Civil Rights Movement and Black History Month. Martin Luther King Jr's "I have a dream speech" is probably one of the most popular ones in history. I would take my students' pictures and put a speech bubble that says " I have a dream..", then I would have my students write their own speech and read them to the class.

Dust Tracks on a Road
Dust Tracks on a Road - Zora Neale Hurston

Zora Neale Hurston approaches this moving memoir like a master storyteller, with wonderfully lyrical prose that reminded me a lot of her novel Their Eyes Were Watching God. Loved it.

Just Can't Do It

I've put down two of the Kimani Romance books on my tbr for the month. They are just too formulaic and one wasn't very well written. When I was just getting back into reading I could read two of these a day. Now they're like most YA books to me, redundant. I will have to change things up. I will continue with the Black History Month theme but will most likely switch up and out the books.
