A Book List for Juneteenth

We hope you enjoy this selection of books for learning about Juneteenth. This observance marks a critical moment in history and books can help guide young children in the conversation about the significance of June 19th and what it means for us today. Do you have a favorite you'd like to share with us? Let us know! You can find us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

If any of these books speak to you, consider checking them out from your local library or independent bookstore. If you'd like to provide any of these books to our students, you can gift them from our June Amazon Wish List.
