Black Books Galore! Guide to Great African American Children's Books About Girls by Donna Rand and Toni Trent Parker John Wiley & Sons, Inc., January 2001, $15.95, ISBN 0-471-37526-8, Ages 7 & up Guide to Great African American Children's Books About Boys, ISBN 0-471-37527-6

The authors of Black Books Galore! Guide to Great African American Children's Books (John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 1998) have compiled two fantastic new resources for children, young adults, parents and educators. Both capture the lives and adventures of African American boys, girls, men and women, understanding that different children have different needs as well as the fact that boys have different needs and interests than girls. The books offer titles from every possible genre. You will find a diverse group of authors and illustrators represented in these selections of picture books, nonfiction, chapter books, and biographies with subjects ranging from conflict to sports to family.

Dedicated to identifying and distributing quality African American children's books which portray positive, active characters, Rand and Parker have created two more solid resources that will help parents and educators find and select books for their children and students. In each volume, the titles are organized by three main entries: Books for Babies and Preschoolers, Books for Early Readers, Books for Middle Readers. In addition, Books for parents of boys and of girls are listed respectively.
