5.0 out of 5 stars Not To Be Missed!, February 4, 2002
This is a truly amazing book, from many perspectives. As a children's book, it is an interesting and acccurate introduction into the life of one of the most important men of our time. It captures the reader, both the young and not so young, with its moving illustrations and powerful text. My six year old was captured by the "Whites Only" sign; she has referred to it numerous times since reading the book. "Mom, would black people have been able to go here/sit here,etc. without Dr. King's words?" has been a consistent question for her, and inspired some thought provoking conversations for us. I can't over stress the importance of this book. It is engaging and honest, refreshingly simple in the delivery of it's most important message, that we must remember to fight with words, rather than our fists. This is a wonderful classroom addition, the historical time line encourages additional discussion of the events surrounding King's life. Martin's Big Words will engage preschoolers through grades 4-5, and encourage them to consider and discuss this eloquent and visionary man. It quietly encourages children to consider the limitless possibilties of their future.
