This title is part of a series of Little People, Big Dreams stories for the very youngest children. It is never too early for them to learn about the people who are part of their world.

This time the story of MLK is told in simple language and with appealing illustrations. Issues of segregation are noted in a matter of fact tone while clearly making the point that discrimination was/is not okay. Children learn how MLK grew up and tried to help people to look at the world differently. The Civil Rights movement is mentioned as was MLK wanting to protest using peaceful means.

King was an inspiration to many. Let him inspire a child that you know as well.

Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher. All opinions are my own.

I love to read, recommend books and open the world of reading to others. I tutor to ensure that the next generation of readers will know the joys of a good book because their reading skills have improved. I am an avid reader, especially of mysteries and fiction. I believe that two of the world's greatest inventions were the public library and eyeglasses!
