Dr. Dee Dee Dynamo’s Saturn Surprise by Oneeka Williams M.D. – BHM 2016: Daily Picture Book Reads: Day 1

When I was a full time classroom teacher, we studied and celebrated Black History, from September to June. February, Black History Month, was dedicated to creating our own histories, inspired by they who came before us. If I was still a full time classroom teacher, as opposed to now being Educator at Large, I would surely include author Oneeka Williams’ third book in the Dr. Dee Dee Dynamo series, Dr. Dee Dee Dynamo’s Saturn Surprise. The Dr. Dee Dee Dynamo picture book series includes fictional characters to educate children on nonfictional content. Main character, Dr. Dee Dee’s mantra is: Not even the sky is the limit! This is the mantra I wish my students to embody when creating their own histories.
