I encourage parents to check out D is for Drinking Gourd, as a part of your Black History reading. Like the Beatitudes: From Slavery to Civil Rights, the text has beautiful illustrations and short verse on the pages-- appropriate for young listeners-- for example: "E is for Emancipation/ a big word that means to be free/ when we received the proclamation/ it was a day of jubilee." In addition to the short text, each page has a margin with additional historical information for older children. What I like most about this text is that it includes ideas that are not often introduced to young children about black history-- B is for Buffalo Soldiers, H is for Harlem Renaissance, T is for Tuskegee Airman, U is for Universities (including several HBCUs), Y is for York (mountain main on Louis and Clark expedition). Teachers could easily expound a each letter a day for a lesson and use this text as a starting point of introducing ideas to young people about the contribution and triumphs of African Americans. There are slight inaccuracies, K is for Kwanza and the picture incorrectly displays the the kinarah (the candles are not correct). Also, the book is a little dated, on the P is for politics and politicians-- it begins with the first senators in reconstruction and ends speaking about Senator Obama (it was created in 2007). However, don't throw out the baby with the bath water. It is still a great ABC book (which I read to my twins all year long-- along with A is for Activist)!

From time to time, an individual comes upon a work that goes above and beyond the requirements for a good children's book. "D is for Drinking Gourd: An African American Alphabet" is an example of children's literature that is, most definitely, a candidate for both Newberry and Caldecott honors.

It exceeds expectations in a BIG WAY!!

It takes the young reader on a history lesson with a combination of simple poetry and more informative prose as it teaches the alphabet order, as well as facts on such diverse fare as politics, the military, entertainment, migration, and familiar, as well as not so familiar, important historical figures.

Though I purchased the book solely on my familiarity with the superb artwork of E. B. Lewis, I am glad to have made this discovery. My niece, the intended recipient of the gift book, will have something that she can share with her children and grandchildren.

Isn't that the purpose of quality literature, anyway?

This book is a great introduction to Black history for even the youngest children. Just the letters and words and pictures can introduce a toddler to people or events that they associate with beautiful art. As they grow, the rhymes of the main text allow for a little more information and may inspire questions about more detail. That detail is then available in the sidebars which can interest children who are reading independently and have outgrown other "ABC" books. I love how this book has grown with my children, inspiring all kinds of conversation about American history (Black history = American history), including conversation about difficult, sad things that might be quite hard to bring up in other contexts. And the art is gorgeous.

This is a wonderful book for everyone of all ages. Even non-readers will enjoy listening to it and looking at the exciting illustrations. But because the passing on of traditions is of great importance when teaching children, I must point out a glaring error in the illustration for K, Kwanzaa. The seven Kwanzaa candles are inaccurate in color and placement according to tradition. These seven candles, one for each of the seven principles (the Nguzo Saba), are placed in the candle holder as follows: 3 red on the left, one black in the middle and 3 green on the right. The colors hold important symbolism for African Americans as expressed by the great Marcus Garvey in the 1920s. The Nguzo Saba is the heart of Kwanzaa. If they are not presented in an accurate manner, the meaning and the spirit of the Kwanzaa celebration is marred.

I bought this book for a faculty colleague who has a young daughter. I love the pictures and the historical information for each letter of the alphabet.

The two books were used in a black history program to allow the children to see the pictures up close as I read the book from the mike.
