This picture book, Carter G Woodson Reads the Paper is a book focusing on his desire to go to school and documenting his desire to prove Black History exists .
This illustrations are bright and appealing. His story is beautifully detailed.The theme of perseverance is shown as he places such a high value on education and reading. Also, the theme of validating Black History is highlighted in this book
Fun fact from this book... Did you know that Dr. Carter G Woodson was the first Black person whose parents had been enslaved to receive a doctorate degree from Harvard University?
My only suggestion with this title, is to introduce terms enslaved and enslaver for terms like slave and master to provide value of the actions and positions.
