Happy Birthday, Martin Luther King Jr By Jean Marzollo


Back of Book:
This book is a beautifully-rendered study of Martin Luther King Jr.’s life, Pinkney’s scratchboard and oil pastel illustrations convey both the strength and gentleness of King’s character. Both text and art carry his central message of peace and brotherhood among all people.
My Review:
I am teaching preschool this year so I am always looking for picture books that I can use to teach concepts in a simple way. The forward in this book explains to parents and educators how words can be changed for younger audiences. The text is simple and straightforward. The lustrations are truly stunning and shows readers the beauty of how Martin King brought people together.
