The ABC's of Black History by Craig Thompson
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Africa is where the first people were born. It has many resources, from diamonds to corn. The book is a bright-coloured, quick rhyming journey through the lives of history makers: billionaire businessman Reginald Lewis, Harlem Renaissance novelist Zora Neale Hurston, entertainment powerhouse Oprah Winfrey, and others leap from the pages. Skip along with places, events, and inventions significant to the black experience. Craig Thompson tells their stories in kid-speak, with carefully chosen words that summarise their contributions. And the backdrop for his words is the toasty hues and primary colours of illustrator Roger James. This unique guide is finally in paperback!
