Book Sharing Monday

We have two books to share today.  The first one is by Andrea Davis Pinkney and it's entitled:  
 Let It Shine
Stories of Black Woman Freedom Fighters.  
It's illustrated by Stephen Alcorn.  The book shares the stories of these women Sojourner Truth, Biddy Mason, Harriet Tubman, Ida B. Wells-Barnett, Mary McLeod Bethune, Ella Josephine Baker, Dorothy Irene Height, Rosa Parks, Fannie Lou Hamer and Shirley Chisholm.  We are still reading it and are so enjoying it, my oldest, especially.  The author shares additional resources & books at the end of the book.  We are definitely learning a lot.

The second book we'd like to recommend is definitely a picture book that's great to read before bedtime.  It's Snug in Mama's Arms by Angle Shelf Medearis, illustrated by John Sandford. 

For those of you who read my other blog, this book goes great with this week's Momfulness Monday practice of making some snug time this week.  My son asks for these story several times a week.
