Open thread (and help a reporter out)

Chat amongst yourselves. But while you’re talking, see if you can help a writer with a story about children’s books:

I’m working on a series about African-American children’s books for
(National African-American Books Examiner)

Rise of African American Children’s Books, Children’s Book Week

If you recall any favorite titles or have recommendations, I’d appreciate your sharing those titles of African-American books for children ages 2-17.

If you’re a public figure, I’d like to quote you. :-)

If you have a blog or website, please also give me your link so I may link to you if I use your selections. If you have time to say why you like a particular book, please do so. If it’s a book you cherished that you’ve passed on to your child, please share that as well.

If you blog this topic or start a meme, even better. Please send me the link.

Thank you for your time. I know everyone’s busy.
