Nice story for the boys to understand what Martin Luther King Jr. did, but it actually has nothing to do with his birthday or that we celebrate him with a holiday. Not sure what the book is trying to accomplish.

A nice picture book for primary grade students to acquaint them with Martin Luther King, Jr. On its own the story is not especially informative or usefully for an elementary biography report resource, best used as an introduction to young readers and listeners; a good read aloud.

I like this book because martin is a brave leader and he was very truthful and show the colored he cared and showed the whites he wants it to stop! Also i recommend this book to people who has a dream and wants to be a leader!
