Hello all! Thank you for visiting, liking, subscribing and sharing The Angela Joy Blog! We’re off to a great start!
I just wanted to let you know that I’ve added a few things to the website since the roll out.
- The “I Have A Dream” page now has a “Digging to the Roots” enrichment section to further explore the topic with you classroom, home school group, or family. This enrichment section will be a part of all picture book recommendations found here.
- I’ve added Perfect Timing, the story of Isaac Murphy, to the list of recommended picture books. Murphy has been called the Michael Jordan of the late 1800s — the original wealthy, African American sports hero. This story has been a great addition to our bookshelf. I hope you enjoy it, too!
- I’ve also added a display to the sidebar, featuring Publishers Weekly’s 2013/2014 list of African American interest books for the young reader. These books are for the older set, and may be of interest to those of you who are beyond the picture book stage.
Thank you again for your tremendous support! I will continue to add resources and edit as we go along. Please feel free to comment and let us know how you are implementing the materials. I look forward to the exchange of ideas, and the building of a community. Happy February!!
Peace & Blessings,
