My Protest: Please Don't Erase My History! is a thought-provoking children's picture book by Linda Gaston-Bessellieu, Tawana Bessellieu, and Jaliyah Bessellieu-Webb. It follows the story of a first-grader, Jaliyah, the co-author's namesake, who is passionate about art and social studies. Jaliyah learns about important Black people during Black History Month and feels inspired to become important. However, Jaliyah learns that some people believe that knowing the truth about Black history can upset others, and information is being taken out of Black history books at her school.
My Protest: Please Don't Erase My History! by Linda Gaston-Bessellieu is a timely book highlighting the importance of knowing Black history. The story is beautifully illustrated and has a powerful message. It encourages children to learn about Black history and take action to preserve it. It includes coloring pages of influential personalities such as Rosa Parks, Ruby Bridges, Martin Luther King Jr., and Barack Obama, which adds to the learning experience. The story is well-written and easy to follow, making it suitable for children of young age. It is an excellent tool for parents and teachers who want to teach children about the struggles and accomplishments of Black people in America. The book's message is empowering, encouraging children to be proud of their heritage and fight for their beliefs. I highly recommend it to parents and teachers who want to highlight the importance of Black history.
