An overview of the life and work of Martin Luther King, Jr. in simple text and dramatic scratchboard and oil pastel illustrations. The author's foreward gives options for reading about Dr. King’s death and is exemplary of the sensitivity of the entire book.

This is best book I have yet found for introducing young children to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his life.
