Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sharon Salluzzo
With just one sentence per page, Bauer manages to explain to young children who Dr. King was and why we celebrate a day in his honor. Segregation, boycotts, marches, and Dr. King's message of nonviolence are presented in the text and shown in the illustrations. Children are depicted in most of the illustrations and are used effectively to draw the reader into the story. Dr. King is shown at the Lincoln Memorial where he gave his famous "I Have a Dream" speech. Other illustrations show African-American and white adults marching in the streets, and a young African-American girl walking into a school "to prove that black children had a right to learn beside white children." Bauer makes a point about equality with a statement from Dr. King's mother, "…you are just as good as anybody" which he took to heart and used in his speeches. This paperback, part of the "My First Biography" series, is a fine introduction for young children and those just beginning to read by themselves. Reviewer: Sharon Salluzzo

    I would buy this product again

    My daughter loved the book. She took it to school to share with her teacher and classmates.
