This is a simple, yet powerful and effective book on Martin Luther King Jr. Simple because it's just 64 pages - but powerful because just those few pages, the photographs, and quotes held the interest of my kids than any bigger book could.

I was moved by so many quotes, that it's hard to pick one to share as my favorite - but perhaps the one that got me thinking the most about my life is the last one where he talks about the legacy he would like to leave behind - "... that I did try to feed the hungry ... to clothe those who were naked ... to visit those who were in prison ... to love and serve humanity." Then he was shot 2 months later.
