This is an excellent book which will give youngsters pride in their knowledge of these heros. Maybe for the younger end of the suggested age range the font is slightly smaller than normal - I bought this for a 6 year old and his reading ability is not that required - however parent reading the book has had him interested in the people he knows about. It should be in every junior school library!
Well made and presented, wide range of people shown, with all different skills & talents. My son is loving reading through this book!! This is a must-have book for any parent of a black child - being represented truly matters!! It’s also a must-have book for any parent of a non-black child, as a way to educate and open minds, and prevent future prejudice.
It was bought originally as a present for my friends daughter, but we ended giving it to her second hand... after my husband and I read it first:/ very enjoyable read and although we're both the wrong side of 40, we still learned a thing or two.
Bought this gift for my sister to have at home for her children. So good for her to be able to show and share with her children black role models across all different paths - President to Authors, Singers to Actresses and even beyond! Should be in every home, to bring awareness of the contribution this group of people made.
I brought this for my niece she is African Caribbean/British/Turkish Cypriot. I wanted her to understand the contribution black people have made to many things we take for granted today something that she will never learn in school
Bought for my god son's first birthday, and really impressed by the quality finish and feel. The colours and illustrations are beautiful and figures included are a great variety of Black leaders and influencers from around the world, and not focused on a particular region.
Bought for my granddaughter and she is obsessed and fascinated by this book. Has pictures of the individuals, which correspond to the number above and the page the story is on. Very interesting and informative. The book is a lot bigger than I assumed.
