February Book Displays

One of the more fun parts of my job is creating book displays for holidays or special events. Here are two I put together for children for the month of February:

February Is… Children’s Dental Health Month

The display included books on dental hygiene and visiting the dentist, as well as pamphlets on oral health provided by the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.

Celebrating Black History Month

This display is focused on black people in the history of science and medicine. I have included biographies of Vivien Thomas, Madame C. J. Walker, Mae Jemison, Benjamin Banneker, Elijah McCoy, Charles R. Drew, Daniel Hale Williams, and George Washington Carver. It is my goal to focus on a different area of history each week of this month (depending on what books are available at my branch). Next week the subject will probably be government and law.

Any ideas for a display in March???

    Thanks so much for including my book, Madam C. J. Walker: Entrepreneur (Chelsea House), in your February book display.
    If any of your students are writing reports about Madam Walker, I hope they’ll visit our website (www.madamcjwalker.com) and check out the section we’ve created for students and teachers. There are several links to other sites, as well as a bibliography, FAQs, etc.

    You are very welcome Ms. Bundles, and thank you for stopping by my blog. I will definitely pass along the website address to anyone looking for more information on Madam Walker.

    Thanks again!
