Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Very young children may not really understand why we have holidays such as Martin Luther King Jr. Day, but early readers like this one can help. Jane Kurtz's poetic text is reminiscent of the oratory that one would have heard from Reverend King himself. She focuses on the day in 1963—the March on Washington, D.C.—when more than 200,000 gathered on the Mall near the Lincoln Memorial. His speech called for all to be included—that every man or woman regardless of color should be allowed to vote and to go anywhere. That things should be fair and that children of all races would hold hands together. His words still ring true, and how pleased Reverend King would be to have witnessed the election of 2008, when a man who had a white mother and a black father was elected the 44th president of the United States. Yes, indeed, his dream of equality has come true. The drawings that accompany the text show various scenes in Reverend King's life—his role as a minister, marching in Civil Rights demonstrations, sitting in jail contemplating his fate and that of the Civil Rights movement and on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, giving one of his most famous speeches. A Level 1 book in the "Ready-To-Read" series. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot

    Great Find!

    A great way for our little ones to explore and share knowledge about our History and those that paved the way. The story is written from the view of a youthful encounter in witnessing a dream shared. An excellent title to add to your childrens book library. The only imperfect thing I noted was that the ending was not the best of finishes, as relating to the rest of the book content.
