Chocolate Storytime selected these picture books to support the 2022 Black History Month theme, Black Health and Wellness. These stories will encourage readers to practice gratitude, love themselves, eat right, move more, and focus on wellness during stressful times. For more on the origin of Black History Month and the theme, visit the Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH).
