Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Large photographs of events in the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and scenes from the segregated South draw young readers into this pared-down biography. Two to four sentences per page lay out the facts: At that time, blacks were not treated the same as whites. The two groups were kept apart. This will work for one-on-one reading and classroom use, but the gaps between the dots may raise more questions than they answer. In 1963, King led a peaceful walk, for instance, is followed on the next page by, On April 4, 1968, King was shot and killed. Although the brevity of the sentences is ideal for the target audience, the text manages to gloss over some pertinent context that's essential for grasping the scope of what Dr. King faced. Perhaps the best use of this book is to page through the excellent suite of photos, soliciting questions and providing answers, telling the small children as much about Dr. King as they seem ready to understand.--Willey, Paula Copyright 2015 Booklist"
