We celebrate black history all year long. That said, I am passing along this book contest. Enjoy!

It’s Black History Month, and that means another giveaway from Lee & Low Books! We’re giving away three sets of three books featuring African Americans, and the contest will run through February 28, 2011.

But wait. Doesn’t that mean that the winners won’t get their books until afterBlack History Month?

Yes! We think Black History Month is important, but black history is part of American History, and shouldn’t get relegated to one month out of the year. So enter below to win three great books to read all year round!

Here’s how it works:

  • You must enter the contest by midnight, February 28th, 2011. There are five ways to enter:
    • Tweet/ReTweet about the contest on Twitter (make sure you include @LEEandLOW).
    • Comment on this post, telling them your favorite Black History reads or how you’d use the books below.
    • ‘Like’ the Lee & Low page on Facebook (let them know in the comments)
    • Subscribe to this Lee and Low blog (let them know in the comments). If you’re already subscribed, just post a comment telling them.
    • Post about the contest on your own blog (if you’re not hosted by WordPress, make sure you tell them in comments).

You get one entry per action – do all of the above and you’ll have five chances to win! At the end of February they’ll randomly select three winners, so be sure to leave them a way to contact you.

Here are some of the books you could win:

Sweet Music in Harlem Knockin' On Wood Seven Miles to Freedom Zora Hurston and the Chinaberry Tree I and I Bob Marley The Last Black King of the Kentucky Derby

Good luck!

One thought to “Black History Month Contest”

  • Bonnie

    I really like the story “The Other Side of the Fence” or “Charlie Parker Played BeBop”. My favorite book for smaller children is “Shades of Black”. I also like the children’s books “Duke Ellington”, “Amazing Grace”, and everything by Ezra Jack Keats.

    I have a daughter who is black and I am also a teacher so I use books like this all the time with my students…during Black History Month and every month of the year. 🙂
