Well as you can see there are a number of books I’ve read since the fall of last year. All are helping tremendously with my parenting journey. I have to say that I’m so glad I waited to read all these titles (except “Parenting Beyond Belief” and “Living Simply with Children” which I ploughed through years ago). I’d come across some of them years before I became a mom although others are new to me. The following is a list of the books I’m aiming to read by next year:
Awakening the Natural Genius of Black Children https://www.amazon.com/Awakening-Natural-Genius-Black-Children/dp/1879164019
Seven Kinds of Smart https://www.amazon.com/Seven-Kinds-Smart-Identifying-Intelligences/dp/0452281377
Beating Black Kids https://www.amazon.com/Beating-Black-Kids-Asadah-Kirkland/dp/B002QO88HK
Selections from the Husia https://www.amazon.com/Selections-Husia-Sacred-Wisdom-Ancient/dp/0943412064
I started this book awhile back and am still at it. Very practical. Written simply. It’s a fun read!
Raising Vegan Children in a Non-Vegan World https://www.amazon.com/Raising-Vegan-Children-Non-Vegan-World/dp/0972510206
Developmental Psychology of the Black Child https://www.amazon.com/Developmental-Psychology-Black-Child-Wilson/dp/0686241835
The Tao of Pooh https://www.amazon.com/Tao-Pooh-Benjamin-Hoff/dp/0140067477
The Family Virtues Guide https://www.amazon.com/Family-Virtues-Guide-Children-Ourselves/dp/0452278104
Raising Revolutionaries https://www.amazon.com/Raising-Revolutionaries-Apetebii-Osunyemi-Akalatunde/dp/147001260X
The Black Parenting Book https://www.amazon.com/Black-Parenting-Book-Caring-Children/dp/0767901967 I started this book a few months ago and am struggling to get through it. Why? I find it very conservative. The whole step-by-step approach is a turn off to me and I don’t find it realistic since every child/family is so unique. It is also written from a very allopathic standpoint which I’m not drawn to. That being said I’m sure some parents love the book.
Kwanzaa: From Holiday to Every Day https://www.amazon.com/Kwanzaa-Holiday-Every-Maitefa-Angaza/dp/0758216653
