More About the Author

Christopher-Award winning author Margaret McNamara has written more than two dozen books for young readers, among them the popular Fairy Bell Sisters chapter books and the Robin Hill School series for early readers. Many of the ideas for her books come from her daughter's school days, or her own. Margaret and her family live in New York City, and spend as much time as they can during the summer in Maine.

"Margaret McNamara is a pen-name," says the author, whose real name is Brenda Bowen. "I write under the name Margaret McNamara because it was my maternal grandmother's name. The real Margaret grew up a very long time ago in County Clare in Ireland, and she was one of the few girls in her village who could read."

Margaret has just completed work on fifth and sixth Fairy Bell Sisters books (about Tinker Bell's Little Sisters); those two titles will release in summer and fall of 2014. Her most recent picture book is "The Apple Orchard Riddle," another book about the students in Mr. Tiffin's class, who first appeared in "How Many Seeds in a Pumpkin." Next up from Margaret is a new adventure set in Mr. Tiffin's class, "A Poem in Your Pocket," to be published on Poem in Your Pocket Day 2015. She is researching a picture book biography of Melville Dewey, inventor of the Dewey Decimal System.

I would definitely recommend this book to any parents with young children under five . This was nice short story to talk about Martin Luther King Jr dreams in a short introduction to what he stood for.

I like how the author uses kids to tell the story. Kids are more ready to listen when they see kids in a story.

I teach Kindergarten so I needed an easy to understand, yet accurate book on Martin Luther King, Jr. and this book was perfect for them. We do a very cute "I have a dream" paper along with this book.

At last, a MLK book for young children, and very thought provoking! It was SO helpful during our Social Studies unit, with just enough information for Pre K kids.
