Juneteenth For Mazie

27 May

juneteenthTitle: Juneteenth – For Mazie
Author: Floyd Cooper

Series: N/A

Recommended for: Grades 1-2

Pages: 40 pages
Call Number/Link:  E Cooper, F.

Synopsis: Mazie is ready to celebrate liberty. She is ready to celebrate freedom. She is ready to celebrate a great day in American history ― the day her ancestors were no longer slaves. Mazie remembers the struggles and the triumph, as she gets ready to celebrate Juneteenth.

Recommendation– I think this a great read aloud book during Black History month.  I did not know about this holiday myself and so I think it would be very interesting to young children.  The graphics are muted and really pull across the history that they are trying to convey.  So a must read for school teachers and preschool to educate the young about a little known holiday.
