About the Author

Jane Kurtz was born in Portland, Oregon, but when she was two years old, her parents decided to move to Ethiopia, where she spent most of her childhood. Jane speaks about being an author at schools and conferences—in all but eleven of the United States, so far, and such places as Uganda, Nigeria, Kenya, France, Germany, Romania, England, Indonesia, Cambodia, the Philippines, and Japan. She helped start Ethiopia Reads (, a nonprofit that is planting the first libraries for children in Ethiopia. She is the author of many books for children.

Amy June Bates has illustrated books including the Sam the Man series, Sweet Dreams and That’s What I’d Do, both by singer-songwriter Jewel; and Waiting for the Magic by Patricia MacLachlan. She lives in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, with her husband and three children.

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.

This describes the great Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr's speech in ways that children at a young age can understand. She describes that he wanted everyone to be treated equal and that he devoted his life to one day this would be accomplished. I would enjoy reading this to students at Holt Elementary because I feel they could grasp a good idea of what Dr. King meant by his speech and it could teach them a history lesson and reading at the same time. As a student I was always interested in the stories and speeches Dr. King was apart of and I feel students now would be interested as well.
