We’re already in our third week of February. Are you/your kids enjoying their Black History Month reading? This week we have a book from Newbery award winner Christopher Paul Curtis called “The Watsons Go to Birmingham.” I’ve enjoyed all his books that I’ve read, but chose this one in particular because it’s a great read for kids. The Watson children live in the unsegregated north (Michigan) in the 1960s and experience segregation and civil rights issues while visiting family in Alabama. Kids, identifying with the main characters, will experience it through their eyes and probably feel similarly when confronted with segregation, since it’s completely foreign to their experience as well.
