I loved this book. It was a book of the speech that Martin Luther King Jr. made August 28th, 1963. The main message or idea of this book is to treat everyone equally. Nobody should ever be mistreated by the color of their skin, and it is important for readers to be aware of this. The way that the speech, or writing, was separated onto distinct pages worked great. A couple of my favorite pages were pages 7 and 8. The portion of the speech included and the illustration made a beautiful point. Sectioning off parts of the speech onto separate pages is beneficial to allow readers to have a bit of a break in between portions of the speech- and time for them to process the speech.
The illustrations were beautiful. On pages 19-22 when the pages are split up into four and the locations of the United States where people can be free, are described. Those four pages were so meaningful and I believe, will be very beneficial for readers to be able to understand different perspectives during this period of time. ( )

This book would be ideal for use in a history lesson. With students you can create a timeline of changes made for African-American citizens over the last century. Highlighting important dates will be essential in showing students the importance of acceptance and diversity. ( )

This book is very good because it shows the struggles many African-Americans faced during the Civil Rights Movement and how one man decided to stand up and speak for those who were silent. I think all children should know who Martin Luther King Jr. is and his speech even though it may be difficult to understand, the pictures make it more of a doable read. ( )

This is a beautifully illustrated book of Martin Luther Kings August 28, 1963 speech at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, DC.

The art work is beautiful! The message, of course, will live on for generations.

I enjoyed this book for a few reasons. The information provided is important for children to learn, but it is delivered in a child-friendly way. The illustrations help the story flow. The big idea is to help children learn about Martin Luther King, Jr.'s vision for America. ( )
