" This book is a book of multiple stories that all grab attention to something. Each story was about something different. Every story is beautiful. Each story is something different. It goes from stories about slavery to stories about an African-American hero story. I would recommend this book to people who like to read multiple stories on different topics at a time. " said.

"Sometimes I'll be thinking about something random and realize that the something that I was thinking is about, is actually from this book. I got this book when I was about seven or something. I was a nerd, so I spent quite a long amount of time reading this, especially stories I liked a lot. Right now, I can remember one about the creation of fire and a man who was a liar.

The whole point behind the book is the messages it portrays to African American children (or maybe, not, even) that just happen to be part of their dynamic history. I remember as a child being so proud of that and of even having a book like this. See, I told you I was a nerd.

Review:


"One-Hundred-and-One African-American Read-Aloud Stories" by Susan Kantor was quite a interesting read. The firs thing I will say is that I did not feel like all of these short stories were for young children. Some I would not care to read to a child. So, what I am saying is that a adult needs to have read it and decide for yourself if you think this particular one is for your child. I found most of them most interesting. This author did a wonderful job with the colorful descriptions...Wow! OK, with that being said you will be presented with "folktales, biographies, history books: songs, poetry and chants." There are some very informative information such as 'Biography, Slavery, and History" that will keep your interested in the read. I think in the end this could be a very good collection for a family at some set time. You will find many myths and fables that will entertain in its teachings. I wish there would have been some illustrations but on a whole I thought this novel was a good read that could go into a family library. However, as I said earlier beware that some of this is not for the younger children...parent please read and see for yourself if it would be for your child....mainly speaking of those younger that 9-10. Now, with that being said yes I would recommend this read to you.

"This book is a sort-of Black Aesop's Fables. It also carries experts from some fairly more famous, adult work like Sounder and Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, an American Slave. This book is remarkable for its span in reading level. This can work for young children, but also adolescents and even pre-teens can benefit from it. Though it is based around African-American folklore it contains a sizable amount African folklore as well (a lot of Anasi, unsurprisingly). Part of a series called One-Hundred-and-One...Read Aloud.
