Naomi Bradley Combines Black Culture With Early Childhood Literacy

naomi_h_bradley_booksWhen Naomi Bradley  M.Ed had her very first teaching assignment at a summer camp when she was 14 years old, she knew there and then that she wanted to make a difference through education.

It was this love for teaching children, along with her passion for African American culture, that prompted her to create content for African American students and parents. 

It Began in Her Home

When her first-born daughter was 22 months old, Bradley began using her own tried-and-true teaching techniques to teach her how to read. As she did so, she documented her journey, combined it with reading instructions, and turned it into a book entitled Reading At One, a step-by-step guide to introducing toddlers and children to reading.

Following that first successful publication was another, entitled The Big Book of Beginner Reading Stories, a book that both encouraged reading for young children and addressed the need for black characters to be included in instructional reading material.

Additionally, Bradley is the author of the rhyming bedtime story, Goodnight Princess, which features both an English and Spanish story, and Aaron Knows About Africa, an informational and encyclopedic text, which lists historical facts about 7 African countries.

Bradley’s books can be found at Amazon, and
