Text-to-Self Connection
After reading Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s speech in the book "I Have a Dream," I got the chills remembering how many times I was read this speech as a child. Throughout my entire life I have heard excerpts or interpretations of his speech, and can recite pieces of it from memory. It truly is an unforgettable speech, and the paintings in this book by Kadir Nelson, give it an even more powerful message, and put it into an easy to read, childlike format. Almost any American can make a text-to-self connection with this book, and so reading the speech out loud to myself made me instantly think of different connections.
