    This, and it's two accompanying books AA Books for Boys and AA Books for girls, fills a gaping hole I had in my life. I read (in Smart Girls, Two) that Maya Angelou read only books by African American authors as a girl. Knowing this set me on a tear of looking for age-appropriate books for my 8 and 5 year old written by people of color. While I borrowed Black Book Galore's from the library, I found this solution annoying as there is no easy way to make note of the large list they recommend.

Another great use I found for this book is checking amazon.com for "customers who also bought this item also bought" to find more recently released books.

    This is a great guide for me to pick out books to read with Erika. I got it from the library and I will pick the books I think she will like and put them on hold at the library
