LINKS Book Lists
The cooperative project between YDL and The Ann Arbor (MI) Chapter of The Links, Inc. involved the creation of five reading lists for various age groups that feature African-American authors and illustrators. A small collection of these books will be hosted at the Parkridge Community Center throughout their Summer Camp sessions, and the rest will be available at the library.
The hope is that these reading lists will provide a rich source of high-quality literature that is both developmentally appropriate and reflective of African-American experiences in order to spark a love of reading among children and teens. Children who complete the reading list for their age group will be given a certificate of completion at the end of the summer.
