The inspiring I Have A Dream speech by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. fills the pages of this large book with beautiful paintings by Kadir Nelson to illustrate the pages. It also includes a CD of Dr King, Jr’s original speech. This book and CD is a great way to share with your children the significance of why we celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Perfect in the classroom, this book has the iconic words we all know against the beautiful paintings of Kadir Nelson. This is a very inspiring and powerful read. I love sharing this book with my kids and helping to educate them on the great leaders and the mark they’ve left on our country and our lives, even though they are no longer with us. A great read to mark the upcoming holiday.
From Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s daughter, Dr. Bernice A. King: “My father’s dream continues to live on from generation to generation, and this beautiful and powerful illustrated edition of his world-changing “I Have a Dream” speech brings his inspiring message of freedom, equality, and peace to the youngest among us—those who will one day carry his dream forward for everyone.”
On August 28, 1963, on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial during the March on Washington, Martin Luther King gave one of the most powerful and memorable speeches in our nation’s history. His words, paired with Caldecott Honor winner Kadir Nelson’s magnificent paintings, make for a picture book certain to be treasured by children and adults alike. The themes of equality and freedom for all are not only relevant today, 50 years later, but also provide young readers with an important introduction to our nation’s past.
