I love comments like this: "Have you noticed how many picture books are on the subject of jazz? Nothing wrong with it, but how many kids these days listen to jazz?" Exactly. They listen to rap. Thanks for the reality check. Of course, I just like to be contrary, and that's not what this blog is all about. It's about spotlighting childrens books by and about African-Americans. (Checked out their first post via Motherreader.) But it appeals to my contrary sensibilities as well as that nervous need for more information about what's available for kids of color. So yeah, bookmark this, people.
