I read a lot of books. Most, but not all, are targeted for members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Some I like. Some are a silly waste of time. The ones I review for this column are the ones I enjoy enough to recommend to others. Once in awhile I find a book I think is particularly exceptional. These two memorable, top notch books are a couple of my personal faves!

I have gathered together some outstanding books for both of these observances. The first five books celebrate America and the rest deal with Black History Month. The first book and the last two books are historical fiction and are good for ages nine and up. The rest of the books are picture books and are best suited for ages seven and up.
