   This book is GEORGEOUS!
I bought this book to be a table topper or a shelf standee on my bookshelf. The content is easy enough for most people to understand, and the content related to the people highlighted in this book is straightforward and presents them in an easy-to-understand format. The illustrations used in the book are absolutely sublime. However, what I like the most is that it always provides good sources of information and further information on each of the heroes presented in the text. This would make it an excellent starting point for kids looking for heroes to write in their classes. This is a book I wish I had as a kid, or even a few times during high school when I had to select influential people to write essays on. This would have been a good starting point over a list of names. It allows you to find a person with whom your interests align. It allows you to find a person with whom your interests align. There are various artists, writers, entertainers and plenty of STEM engineers alike.

   Title of book separates so can't buy
I am sorry, but I could not buy this book with the title. I have two boys at a city school. My son's best friend at school has dark skin and the color of his skin has never come up. My kids have a space ship toy with a white astronaut that is black and the other is white. My boys fight over the black figure because they like his white space suit better than the red suit of the astronauts. I would buy this book if it was titled heros with all or only black heros highlighted in the book. By titling them black heros, you are sperating them from all the other heros. You are telling children that black heros are somehow different. Not what I want to teach my children. It is a shame that stops us from seeing it, but it is important to me to teach children to see past skin tone.

   Wonderful for 1st-3rd grade
I am a 1st-3rd teacher and I bought this for the Black History Month to help educate myself and my students. The pictures are informative and the summaries strike just the right balance between beautiful and not too heavy. I learned a lot and loved it completely. I love the quotes from each person especially. A really great mix of rulers, writers, political figures, sports stars and artists, all representing different countries and covering both genders. I had my children look through and pick a person they thought was interesting and then read through them during storytime. They were a lot more invested in the stories and different people when they knew that their choice might come up next. ) NOTE : I did not have my children read the book themselves. Some of them wouldn't have been able to read this level. I read it out loud to them and understood it well.

   Missing Conservative Black Americans
Why is Serena Williams and Barack Obama in this book, but Ben Carson, Condoleeza Rice and William Sowell missing? We need a broad representation of Diverse black Americans.

   Hero’s come in all colors!!
With all due respect, I can see the color of the heros on the cover are black... Why this need when we are in uncertain times to call this book black heros '', I know they are truly heros. But if there was a book called White Hero's '' and included all the heros in the same book... black, white and all in between... just to stir up some harmony among humanity... Peace to all!

   Great to read with 5 year old
My 5 year old son and I pick up a bio to read after our night story. The entries are a great, short introduction to black history for children. I like that it includes African Americans as well as Africans. It is important to tell stories that occurred before slavery. This was exact what I was looking for.

   Must-have family book!
An awesome addition to our family library. While the material is a little advanced for my almost 3-year-old daughter, she still asks to read it together and enjoys when I summarize the biographies. I also learn a lot about!
