There are few better ways to celebrate African-American History Month than by picking up a good book to share with your child. In addition to this year’s Caldecott Honor Book, Dave the Potter, here are three new 2011 Black History Month releases we recommend to begin teaching your children about African American history.

Underground by Shane Evans offers a graceful, sensitive introduction to the underground railroad. It’s great for children as young as preschoolers.

A Nation’s Hope: The Story of Boxing Legend Joe Louis by Matt De La Pena tells the powerful story of African American boxer Joe Louis. Not only is the story gripping, but the illustrations are remarkable.

For older readers, it doesn’t get more poignant than Freedom Stone by Jeffrey Kluger. This magical, engrossing Civil War novel follows a 14-year-old quest for freedom.
