This book was a different look at Martin Luther King‘s fight for equality. This book looked closer into the words he said, and the ways he impacted people with his teachings and words. It shows us how everyone is special in their own way regardless of who they are. I love how the title of the book is on the back and the cover is a huge picture of him smiling

“Every time Martin read the words, he felt bad. until he remembered what his mother told him: 'you are as good as anyone.'“
Winner of the Jane Addams Children's Book award. I enjoyed this because of the repetitive structure with the words big words. they made it clear that what MLK said will never be forgotten and the impact he had on people and our history was evident. Plot also gave a good story and added/built up to the overall theme that was being portrayed.
