This book was written by Martin Luther King Jr’s sister, which would make it some that you can almost introduce this book as an animated primary source, because she is writing based on what she witness and endure in her life growing up in the house with MLK, which is a first hand account. This book would be excellent for a unit about change agents or heroes. Often times students are almost given the impression that public figured where “born great”, but they never highlight what they had to do and the things they had to go through to get there. This book shows that MLK was human just as you and I are and focuses on his more human side. The illustrations are excellent in this book and even go hand and hand with those in their actual house, down to the wall paper on the wall
