Book Sharing Monday

Today we're sharing another one of our library books: The Real McCoy: The Life of an African-American Inventor by Wendy Towle. This is the story of Elijah McCoy. We learned about his childhood and how he came to invent everyday things. The phrase "Real McCoy" was coined by people who wanted to know if something was really one of his or a counterfeit. We read this story over two days and really enjoyed learning all about his life and inventions.

Thanks for sharing this book with us. I have been looking for more African-American history, childrens books,and artists to read to the kids. That is going to be a part of my goal for 100 books a month in December.
