I am delighted to be rounding off Black History Month 2022 with a fabulous interview with Nathan Holder, the author of Where Are All The Instruments? West Africa, illustrated by Charity Russell. The best-selling music educational series Why Books encourage kids to ask questions, learning about music alongside diverse characters and a diverse range of musical styles. The latest book in the series is launching in November and introduces young children to many traditional instruments from West Africa!
To celebrate Black History Month, I want to share six fabulous books for children published in 2022 that celebrate Black culture in one way or another, from our hair to history and the power of names.
