I appreciate that it didn't discuss his assassination, a sad but important part of history that she'll learn about when she's older. I also really like that it ends by talking about how Martin Luther King, Jr. made his dream come true and you can make your dreams come true too.
I also like how it gently lists some injustices he experienced and how that made him angry, the word "angry" is in a bigger font than the rest of the text on that page. Then it talks about what he did about it. We're working on being aware of our emotions and responding correctly. What an important lesson for a child, to see how Martin Luther King, Jr. took his righteous anger and used it to make the world better. The book just wouldn't be as good if it didn't mention that he felt angry at how he was treated.
It's a simplification and an introduction of the concept of racism for my toddler. More than anything it's familiarizing him with Martin Luther King Jr's name and how important it is to stand up and speak out for what you believe in.

A must for those who believe the National Curriculum does not cover many of the important issues that history has shown.
