"The book, in bright visuals and engaging text, offers up information about Dr. King's childhood, his studies, and, of course, his work on behalf of equal rights... The large typeface and varied sentence structure is ideal for emergent readers." --Booklist "There are very few books about Martin Luther King that are as accessible to younger students as this one, yet it is not too simple." --Library Media Connection
