Read-Alouds are an integral part of our homeschool. There’s something about snuggling up on the couch and reading together that makes our homeschool, well, work. For Black History month, we read books about inspiring African-Americans. These are some of our favorite Black History month read aloud books. Join us in reading or listening and don’t forget your free printable book list at the bottom of this post you can take to the library.

Hi, I’m Dachelle. I’m a homeschooling mom of 3 in the South. I love chocolate and have been known to hide it from my children.
