    Biographies

    David Adler has done a great series called A Picture Book of...We have used many of them, but he has done Harriet Tubman and Sojourner Truth, among others. He also may have done Frederick Douglass, and I know he has done Martin Luther King. You can probably find enough African Americans for Black History Month, and enough women to use for Women's History Month in March. My kids read these in literature study and then did biography poems about their person to teach others. I also like Minty by Jerry Pinkney about Harriet Tubman, and Faith Ringgold's Dinner at Aunt Connie's. That book introduces some lesser-known African American women, and the children can research for further facts.
