One of the requests I often receive is for a list of African American authors and illustrators of children's books. When I finally found one, it quickly disappeared from the Web. I have now located a new one and have added it to my Africa/African American directory. The directory contains my book reviews of related children's books, including John Henry, followed by links to other sites, including the African-American Authors and Illustrators of Children's Books list from the Harford County (MD) Public Library. There, you will find several recommended reading lists, followed by a list of African American children's book authors and illustrators.
