C&B BOOKS, was started in 1995, by Carol Rogers & Brenda Piper.The motivation behind this book business, was the lack of affordable books written by black authors.  We decided to become an asset to our Youth and the African American community in a whole.  We offer our books for less then the major stores, we knew this would provide our readers with a wider variety of reading material. We have, titles for all ages in all catagories, fiction, non-fiction, spiritual, inspirational, educational etc.

At Break of Day
AT BREAK OF DAY
Ages 4-8

Author:Nikki Grimes, John Collier (Illustrator)

Once upon a time there was no time.
There was no earth, or sky, or sea.
There was only darkness and the water of the deep and a father and son who watched over them.
---lines from At Break of Day
In this version of the creation story, God and his Son are working together to call the universe into being: "The son knowing exactly what was in his father's heart, asked, `Now, Father?' and the father said, `Yes, Son. Now.'" This sets the tone for their joint effort as darkness blows over the waters, a ribbon of tinted loops of rose and purple and gold becomes the sky, the seas fill with fish and other creatures, and, finally, tenderly, man and woman are made. Illustrating all this in an appropriately unique fashion are Morin's bold, textured illustrations. Thickly painted swirls of color, touched with shells and lace for the flora, sing of the power of the touching attention to detail that went into the Creation. Grimes' prose usually soars to the occasion, but there are a few slips: when the Son tells Adam and Eve to "Enjoy," he sounds more like a waiter than a creator. Overall, a vigorous addition to the Creation canon. Ilene Cooper

Author:Tim Ladwig (Illustrator)

Meant to Be
MEANT TO BE

Author:Rita Coburn Whack

When "Meant to Be" opens, thirteen-year old Patience Jan Campbell is called upon to read and interpret her future for the church congregation:? I think this scripture means that children know every shut eye ain't that sleep and every head bowed ain't that praying, so grown ups ain't that fooling us or God..So nobody should hold a child back from God just because they may be having trouble finding him.
