Martin's Book Words:
The Life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr
I love using this award-winning picture book with young students. A Caldecott Honor and a Coretta Scott King Honor are among the many awards which this book has received.
Author Doreen Rapport retells the life of Dr King with text that accessible for young readers. She perfectly pairs her narration with quotes from Dr. King.
Artist Bryan Collier brilliantly brings the words to life with illustrations which are big and bold. The warm color pallet and close up portraits are as striking as the text.
Together the narration, images, and quotations offer a powerful experience for young readers.
"Sooner or later, all the people of the world will have to discover a way to live together."
