Rooting and Reading is a initiative of Thomas Community Consulting. The books selected are designed to build cultural awareness and boost social emotional learning. By reading books where African American students can see themselves positively represented, we can begin to create a bridge between students' home and school lives that celebrates, who they are, acknowledges their lived experiences, while reinforcing their cultural values.

  1. I like the Rooted and Reading website. It would be good for MLK Day or Black History Month.-Jeff Herringa, PK-8 Librarian (Milwaukee Public Schools)
