Purchased two books on Martin Luther King Jr and this was the winner. It touches on the right topics of his life and discusses race in a respectable way that I feel my children will understand. Would highly suggest this one if you are looking to discuss this topic with your little ones like me.

This is my favorite MLK book for teaching. It has simple, rich text, and my students can easily pull several meaningful details from it. I love the discussions it inspires. Many of my other MLK books have inappropriate content for young children. This one doesn't.

This is a very basic text for young readers but it does not use any historical vocabulary or terminology to accompany the text. So we will discuss the vocabulary and use the text to have some colorful visuals.

The book is easy to read, informative and the illustration makes children eager to turn the page. I will be purchasing additional books from this author in the future.

This was a gift for my granddaughter, she is 6 years old and she loves it. She is able to use it in school as part of an assignment. Great for kids.

Great book for introducing The Civil Rights Movement to my 6 yr. old. We will be sharing this book with his first grade classroom.
