Embracing Black History

This month and beyond, we encourage you and your children to celebrate the countless contributions of African Americans to our country and culture. We offer ideas for connecting kids with the African American experience, celebrating black history all year long, and finding your family’s roots. Read more.

 Books That Bring the Black Experience To Life

Books that celebrate the black experience are available for all ages and stages. Whether books focus on African American life from a historical perspective or a contemporary one, you can't go wrong. There are so many themes to explore with children during Black History Month and throughout the year. Check out our recommendations.

History Is Everywhere

Explore your own community or family history this month with a trip to a local historical site, museum or by interviewing a friend, neighbor or family member for your very own oral history project. To get you started, you can use this family history interview wizard from ARTHUR.

 Valentine’s Day Crafts

Valentine’s Day celebrates our feelings for the loved ones in our lives. PBS Food has some great recipe ideas for everyone in the family from red velvet pancakes to 30-second chocolate cake! Take a look!

Figuring Out Feelings

A child's ability to process her feelings and manage relationships will have a large impact on their success in school — and in life. Find out how your child's social and emotional skills may develop in a given year.
