I love to use the book Dinner at Aunt Connie's by Faith Ringgold. In the book, her characters come to dinner at Aunt Connie's house. They realize that the paintings are actually famous African American women, who come to life at the dinner table. I have the kids team up to research these people, and they then do a picture/portait in Faith Ringgold's colorful style. It is great because it also serves as a bulletin board for Women's History Month in March, should you choose to leave it up. Faith Ringgold's work also makes for an interesting author study.
