"Frozen Dreams" by Lauren Tarshis

For decades, history ignored the achievements of explorer Matthew Henson, who helped discover the North Pole. As a Black American, Henson faced racism and discrimination. Despite his intelligence, skills, and hard work, Henson was long denied the opportunities and recognition he deserved. Henson's journey will enthrall your students and provide you with a meaningful story with which to celebrate and teach Black History Month.
