A landmark reference highlights the best and brightest in an increasingly rich and popular genre. With so many children's books to choose from, parents are looking for help in finding the most positive, best written, and most acclaimed titles available. This book fills the information gap with the first fully annotated guide to focus exclusively on African American books. It includes easy-to-use indexes by title, subject, author, and illustrator, boxed features about renowned writers and illustrators, and listings of award winners and Reading Rainbow Books. Black Books Galore! is the nation's leading company organizing book fairs and festivals of African American children's books. Winner of the Parenting magazine's 1998 Parenting Leaders Award, BBG was founded by three African American mothers: Donna Rand (Stamford, CT), Toni Trent Parker (Stamford, CT), and Sheila Foster (Greenwich, CT).
