SLJ’s African-American Experience Children’s Literary Reference Guide (2010-2015)

26 Feb 2015

School Library Journal’s Elizabeth Bird compiled a fantastic list of books for her blog, Fuse 8 Production, to celebrate Black History Month. The “African-American Experience Children’s Literary Reference Guide (2010-2015)” consists of numerous stories from the past 5 years that portray the African-American experience, both historical and contemporary, by some of the most talented authors and illustrators working today. We were delighted to find some Painted Words artists mentioned in the list, including works by Elizabeth Zunon, Frank Morrison, and Vanessa Brantley Newton. See which of our illustrators’ books were mentioned below, and a full list on the Fuse 8 blog here.
