The Cart That Carried Martin by Eve Bunting


Back of Book:
The strength and spirit of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. permeate this picture book about the funeral of Dr. King in Atlanta, Georgia, in 1968. Quiet, yet affecting, THE CART THAT CARRIED MARTIN is a unique tribute to the life of a man known world-wide for his outstanding efforts as a leader of the African-American Civil Rights Movement.
My Review:
Eve Bunting is a gifted author with the ability to bring a reader into whatever world she is writing about. She beautifully crafted this simple story that tells readers about the cart that carried Martin King’s body to be buried. The text is simple but tells the important true story of how Martin King was buried. Don Tate is an incredibly talented illustrator. He brings each picture to life. This is a great book to share in the classroom during MLK Day.
