In my recent CORA Diversity Roll Call post, I shared that I always give my daughters books for Christmas. You all know my commitment to literacy, supporting educators and how strongly I feel about getting books into the hands of readers.
Today I'd like to say thank you to teachers and librarians. I have six children’s books to donate to school libraries or classrooms. If you’d like one of these books, please comment at Color Online with your preference and the name of your school. I’ll do a random drawing. It’s hectic right now and schools will be on break so all books will ship after Christmas. The following titles are available:
Shining Star: The Anna May Wong Story by Paula Yoo illustrated by Lin Wang
In Her Hands: The Story of Sculptor Augusta Savage by Alan Schroeder, illustrated by Ja Me Bereal
Sacred Mountain: Everest by Christine Taylor-Butler
As Good As Anybody: Martin Luther King Jr. and Abraham Joshua
Hersel’s Amazing March Toward Freedom by Richard Michelson illustrated by Raul Colon
John Coltrane’s Giant Step by Chris Raschka
Testing The Ice by Sharon Robinson illustrated by Kadir Nelson
Our review policy states all books are redistributed. I mean what I say.
If you are an author and would like to donate your book, contact me and I’ll add it to the list.
Deadline to request book is December 31st. All books will ship after the first week of January.
I would like to ask that all recipients, if possible, please publish a review of the title on your blog or grant me permission to publish your review at Color Online.
Happy Holidays and happy reading,
