Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

This Level 3 reader begins with just the right question for the intended audience: Who was Martin Luther King, Jr.? Then, young readers are asked to imagine living in a time when black and white children couldn’t swim in the same pools or attend the same schools. In nine sections (not numbered), the book, in bright visuals and engaging text, offers up information about Dr. King’s childhood, his studies, and, of course, his work on behalf of equal rights. There are 8 Awesome Facts about Dr. King, including this impressive stat: he gave 2,500 speeches during the last 11 years of his life. The large typeface and varied sentence structure is ideal for emergent readers, and the text is broken up frequently by stirring period photos, words to know, and a time line. A concluding quiz tests comprehension, and a pictorial glossary will help reinforce vocabulary. A graphically engaging introduction to a visionary who, luckily, left us his words to remember him by. This also offers kids the opportunity to become a Super Reader via an online rewards program. Grades 1-3. --Kelley, Ann

"There are very few books about Martin Luther King that are as accessible to younger students as this one, yet it is not too simple." --Library Media Connection

Format: Paperback
This National Geographic Kids mini biography series is perfect for elementary age readers not only to gain some understanding of the featured person but also a bit about the technology and culture as well. Each book is filled with wonderful photographs, vocabulary definitions to better assist in understanding of key concepts, interesting facts, detailed timelines, and a quiz in the afterward to test comprehension of the material covered.

Our greatgrandson had to do a report on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The book was a great help and looked great on his poster.
We think it was just what he needed for information and explanation of MLK's life.
