Back Of Book:
As Angela Farris Watkins introduces children to her uncle, she presents them with a rare glimpse into his life at home, including special family moments. What unfolds is a story of character and service to God, family, and mankind, and of how one man’s extraordinary love changed the history of the United States.
I have found that talking to my Kinders about Martin Luther King Jr and Civil Rights can be tough. They don’t understand why color matters or why Martin King was killed. Our school Liberian read this story to my class and I feel in love with it. It shows the dedication of Martin King in a very sweet way. It is written by his niece and tells readers how dedicated Martin King was to what he believed in. The illustrations are soft and sweet. Overall I truly enjoyed this story.
