Study time!

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


Seven Kinds of Smart

Beating Black Kids

Selections from the Husia

Magical Child

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

Odu Ifa

Developmental Psychology of the Black Child

The Tao of Pooh

The Family Virtues Guide

Raising Revolutionaries

The Black Parenting Book     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

Books by Judy Arnall & Grace Llewellyn
