This book is included in a great bibliography series for young children. Bauer takes real life situations that are important for all to know and transforms them into understandable, kid-friendly stories. This story about Martin Luther King Jr. introduces segregation and the civil rights era. The pictures are big and bold, perfect for young ones to take in. The one sentence pages make it easy for discussion on one point at a time through the life of MLK. The intended audience is primary readers. A teacher can use this child-intended bibliography in many ways to instruct. It is perfect when children are being introduced to segregation and discrimination of the past. Also, this book can be used to learn about people who helped changed the world. One more way to incorporate this book into your curriculum is to use it during black history month.
