I LOVE this web site/ blog. I just printed out this page to take home to my son who is fascinated by the civil rights movement.

I am also a little envious of your idea here. What a great thing to review children's books.

I always say in another life I'd love to be a children's librarian or, heaven forbid, a children's author.

Anyway, keep up the great work.

I appreciate your kudos. I've been struggling with whether or not to keep this site going. Yes, on the one hand, I get lots of free books. I was also a finalist in the Best of Blogs competition. Yaay!

But my dreamed-of "big break" didn't happen at my local newspaper. The book review editor instead hired a friend of his to review children's books. Sigh.

This takes a lot of my time and energy, but then I look at my stats counter and I want to chuck the whole thing and go hide.

So, thanks for the boost. I needed it today. :-)

Don't give up yet.

I was just thinking, as I clicked over just now, that one day this site will be featured somewhere and you'll hit the big time and I'll be able to say I was reading way back when almost no one else knew about it. And I'll feel so cool.

We must move forward. There is nothing in the past except tools of guidance to help us in the future. As a progressive brother who happens to be black, for Black History Month I unveil my inventions, and they are substantial in terms of technology, law and media.



Might I be so bold as to mention my own book from black history?
Robert Smalls Sails to Freedom. You can read more about it at: http://www.susantaylorbrown.com/robertsmalls.html

Susan: Go for it! Authors are always welcome around here. Looks like a very cool book too.

Here's the link to Susan Taylor Brown's book.

It's great to see our book "Mama Panya's Pancakes" mentioned, and that people are aware of the great struggle to reach Dr. King's colorblind society. We saw a video last night at a Baha'i meeting about Katrina in New Orleans, and how evacuees were stopped at the West bridge purely based on race. Truly the antithesis of Adika's loving inclusiveness, so we've gotta keep writing and educating. Keep up the great page!

Katrina was a tragedy and national disgrace that created psychic wounds in African Americans and horrified all people of goodwill. We'll be analyzing its lessons for years ... but will we learn from it? I hope so.

Thanks so much for stopping by and for your kind words.
