Summary: This book is composed of the famous speech made by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. during the civil rights movement. The "I Have a Dream" speech is an iconic speech for Americans.
Genre: This book would be considered an informational text because it is a direct quote from Martin Luther King Jr. himself, but MLK did not write the speech for the purpose of the book. The illustrator of this book did not add anything to what is said, but added pictures capturing what Dr. King said in 1963 on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. The point of this book is to inform the readers about what it was that MLK said and paint a picture of what it was like back then and what his dream looked like. There is a note in the front that there are two minor changes made for clarity and an omission of one paragraph. While this happens, I believe the makers of the book do this with purpose and this is still a credible source about what happened on that day in 1963.
Medium: Oil paint
Age Appropriateness: Any age
Use in a classroom: This book could be used to talk about the Civil Rights movement and to retell what Martin Luther King Jr. said in his I Have a Dream speech. You could also use a recording of his voice to tell this story, and use the book more for the illustrations to create a picture of what it was like to be there.

I have a dream
This book is about the opportunity for African American to unite and don’t give up on your dream. I have a dream speech talk about him getting past the oppressor and being one nation under god. Dr. Martin Luther King gave one of the most powerful and memorable speeches in our nation's history, this book is an example of it. Kids of all nationalities should read this book, this will give insight on the struggle blacks went through in the 50’s and 60’s.

Personal Reaction:
If this speech does not move you, then you don’t have a pulse at all. Dr. King knew a lot had to change for the betterment African Americans. I love this book on many different levels, the way he spoke I felt like he was talking to me. This is a book that can be read now and fifty years in the future and still being change into this world. This book should be in every class in the United States.

Classroom Extension Ideas:
1.Put on a play about the Dr. King speech in 1963 to the community.
2.Give kids a chance to ask what that speech means to them.
3.Ask kids do they know who Dr. King is? Then ask them what they think about what is going on today and in 1963. ( )
