Review; Martin Luther King, Jr. (Little People, Big Dreams) by Isabel Sánchez Vegara
Description from Goodreads
From the critically acclaimed Little People, BIG DREAMS series, discover the life of Martin Luther King, Jr., the inspiring minister and civil rights activist.
Little Martin grew up in a family of preachers: his dad was a preacher, his uncle was a preacher, his grandfather was a preacher…so maybe he’d become a great preacher too. One day, a friend invited him to play at his house. Martin was shocked when his mother wouldn’t let him in because he was black. That day he realized there was something terribly unfair going on. Martin believed that no one should remain silent and accept something if it's wrong. And he promised himself that—when he grew up—he’d fight injustice with the most powerful weapon of all: words. This moving book features stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, including a biographical timeline with historical photos and a detailed profile of the inspiring activist’s life.
My Thoughts on the BookThis book about Martin Luther King, Jr. was neat. I loved the illustrations and it was informative. It also talks about racism and civil rights (as it should, considering it is about MLK) and it could easily teach young kids a little bit about those topics.
