Book News Annotation:

Rand is a professional in marketing and Parker is active in civic organizations; it's their experience choosing books as parents that inspired them to begin this series. They wrote this guide to provide a list of books that contain positive role models for African American girls (though it would benefit any girl and her parents). The annotations (of 360 titles) are arranged in three chapters divided by age (up to the 8th grade), interspersed with profiles of writers and illustrators, and shorter sidebars by personalities who tell what they read as children.
