Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Vicki Foote
This biography, written in vocabulary that young children can understand, briefly covers the life and legacy of Dr. King. Photographs and short text tell how he worked to improve the lives of African Americans. A calendar shows the date near his birthday that he is celebrated. There is a photograph of President Ronald Reagan signing a declaration to make Martin Luther King Jr. Day an official holiday. One page tells the year he was born and how black people did not have the same rights as white people. There are photos of his family and of one of the marches he led to try to change unfair laws. It discusses how he devised a plan to allow African Americans to be able to sit where they chose on buses. His famous words from his “I Have A Dream” speech and a photo of him in at the march in Washington, D.C. are included. A chapter about honoring his dream relates the ways he is remembered. A craft lesson has directions about how to make a “Dream Display” using simple materials. Facts in boxes throughout the text add more information. A table of contents, glossary, index, and a “Show What You Know” page are included in this text that is part of the “Rookie Read About Holidays” series. This text is a good resource for young readers, and would make a useful addition to schools and libraries. Reviewer: Vicki Foote AGERANGE: Ages 5 to 7.

PreS-Gr 2—This set offers concise historical information and an unbiased evaluation of the cultural significance of holidays. Every aspect of this series seems perfectly tailored to Common Core classrooms that strive to make nonfiction exciting. Clever chapter headings, such as "Meet a Furry Forecaster!" in Groundhog Day, draw students in. "Fast Fact!" text boxes and photo captions will grab their attention while providing additional information. Reproductions and gorgeous, glossy color photos will spark conversations. For example, one photo shows a woman holding an enormous groundhog aloft. Calendars invite numerical and spatial learning, and the arts-and-crafts projects will help readers synthesize facts. Even the tables of contents and glossaries are visually dynamic. Not a single inch of page space is wasted (e.g., page numbers are presented inside icons in the shape of the holiday's symbol, such as a groundhog, heart or dreidel). Students will appreciate and be entertained by discovering new details with each read.
