Although we never learn the baby’s name, a little Black boy and his faithful puppy companion help you teach complex concepts like gravity to toddlers. And especially for Black children, learning that people who looked like them were able to overcome societal obstacles can give them the courage to face tough situations in the future. In this installment, you’ll learn about the poet and civil rights activist Maya Angelou. In this book we follow the lead character, a little Black girl named Grace, as she learns about the importance of voting.
