WIN Celebrating Black History Month: 5 Books for Kids Promoting Mental Health Awareness

By Katilyn Thomas

As we celebrate Black History Month, let’s honor the amazing accomplishments and strength of Black heroes and heroines, and also talk about how we take care of our feelings and thoughts. Reading books with different characters and stories about feelings can help us start these important conversations with kids! Here are five awesome books that do just that:

  1. “Sulwe” by Lupita Nyong’o
    Join Sulwe on her journey to discover her own beauty and worth. This book teaches us to love ourselves just the way we are!
  2. “The Day You Begin” by Jacqueline Woodson
    Meet lots of different people and learn how everyone’s story is important. This book helps us understand and respect each other.
  3. “Don’t Touch My Hair!” by Sharee Miller
    Follow Aria as she stands up for herself and celebrates what makes her unique. This book shows us how to be proud of who we are!
  4. “The ABCs of Black History” by Rio Cortez
    Explore the amazing history and achievements of Black people from A to Z! This book makes us proud of our culture and history.
  5. “Hair Love” by Matthew A. Cherry
    Join Zuri and her dad in a sweet story about love, family, and being yourself. This book reminds us that our natural beauty is something to celebrate!

By reading these books together, we not only celebrate Black history but also talk about important things like how we feel about ourselves and others. Let’s help each other feel strong and proud!

Happy reading and happy Black History Month!
