Welcome to weekend links! This is my opportunity to share all the wonderful links and book-related ideas I have come across along with a sprinkling of JIAB news.

Now that the excitement of Multicultural Children’s Book Day is settling down to a dull roar, I am pleased to be able to shift my attention to even more important observances. February is Black History Month. Why does this matter, you may be asking? As Huffington Post so intelligently shared:

Black history month – African-American history month – matters because for many of us, it’s the only history we have. To those of every race who have fought for, and continue to fight for, the equal rights of African-Americans in this country, your stories, sacrifices, and contributions will not be forgotten. I will not allow it. Black lives matter. Black history matters. And we will not forget.-Huffington Post

So my goal this week is to share the links, resources, and booklists that brings this wisdom to life. Enjoy!
