Harlem's Little Blackbird, The Story of Florence Mills Book Review

If You've Been Following The Blog You Are Aware That We Are Big Readers In Our House, My Children Have Books Everywhere & We Love Adding To Our Library! :) 

Since February Is National Black History Month, I Thought What Better Way To Kick It Off Than With A Story From Random House Children's Books, Harlem's Little Blackbird.

Harlem's Little Blackbird Is About A Little Girl Named Florence Mills & She Was Born In 1986 & Lived In Washington, DC. Florence Mills Was The Daughter Of Former Slaves Living In A Teeny-Tiny, Itsy-Bitsy House. 

Her Mother Loved To Sing & Taught Florence How To Use Her Voice As Well. Florence Thought "If My Voice Is Powerful Enough To Stop The Rain, What Else Can It Do?" Her Voice Quickly Found It's Way Around The City & She Was Invited To Perform At A Fancy Theater. 

On November 1, 1927 Sadly Her Song Came To An End, More Than 150,000 Mourners Flooded The Streets Of Harlem To Say Goodbye Along With Hundreds Of Blackbirds.
