My boys are five and eight, in kindergarten and second grade. I searched around for newer early chapter books with Black boys as main characters. We have read most of the old favorites and I always want to find something new for them for Christmas gifts. It wouldn't be a perfect holiday without some new reads under the tree! Here is what I found after reading posts at The Brown Bookshelf. Do you have any other suggestions? Have you read any of these with kids? What do you think?
