Welcome! Maple Sugar Child has been on hiatus for awhile, taking care of children became a priority last year. Of course, children always have to come first but now I am back with lots to share as we celebrate Black History Month and the African American Child. Returning in time for Black History Month is significant. We celebrate African American achievement all year long but February gives us an opportunity to access how far we have come and what direction we need to go. Sometimes African American children are not aware of the important role young people have played in our history. February is the best time to remind them.
