School Library Journal Review

Gr 2-4-Following a brief introduction to the National Civil Rights Museum, three short chapters describe King's life, and two final chapters focus on the history and celebration of the holiday itself. Captioned photographs accompany the text. Sidebars contain photos of children along with their comments about "What Martin Luther King, Jr., taught me." While the feelings and opinions expressed ring true, the comments themselves do not seem very childlike. Following the text, complete instructions are given for a craft project about friendship. This title expands upon the events and concepts presented for a younger age in Mir Tamim Ansary's Martin Luther King Jr. Day (Heinemann Library, 1999).-Janie Schomberg, Leal Elementary School, Urbana, IL (c) Copyright 2010.
