1. Today we are going to read a book that will start our thinking about black history. February is Black History month. Does anybody know what Black History month is about?

This is on the lower end of the difficulty scale. This book is on a 2nd grade level. I would use this toward the beginning of the unit because it is easy to read and it focuses on a Civil Rights figure most students are familiar with--Martin Luther King Jr. This text also covers a lot of the basic information about the Civil Rights movement along with very nice illustrations.
The illustrations are beautiful! The book has a question answer format instead of presenting material in a story. The information was well presented though and not at all choppy. I enjoyed the book and learned more about Martin Luther King Jr.
