Summary: This book is based on the Nick Jr show, Little Bill. In this book, a young boy, Bill comes home from school with a flower that he made in honor of Dr. King. His grandmother then goes on to explain what all DR. King did and what he wanted for our country. Little Bill decides that he would like to do something similar and help people that he knew.

Personal Reaction: I enjoyed this book. I used to watch Little Bill on TV, so I was already familiar with the characters. But I felt like this book was a great way to teach children about Dr. King.

Classroom Extension:
1) The class could do the same thing that Bill's classroom did; make a flower in honor of someone that’s known for promoting peace and equality.
2) This book would also be used when teaching about Dr. Kings dream, since the book helps explain it a little bit more simply than most text books.

This book is based on the character of Little Bill. Some children may recognize him from the Nick Jr. television show. This book is a gentle introduction to Dr. King's work. Little Bill interprets the lessons from a child's perspective, thinking about how he can avoid conflicts at school and how to be more thoughtful and caring. It is a story children can easily follow and relate to.

If a class is celebrating heroes or Black History month, this would be a good book to include as a read out loud. Children could make an album similar to Little Bill's. They could cut out pictures or draw pictures to illustrate sharing, helping others, and kindness. The children could do a short presentation, talking about a time they did one of these actions...or even a time they didn't and what they could have done differently at that time.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0689852428, Paperback)

"Hello, friend."

Children love to learn and are always figuring things out about themselves and the world around them. And the more they know, the better equipped they are to handle the challenges of growing up.

Little Bill encourages children to value their family and friends, to feel good about themselves, and to learn to solve problems creatively.

I hope young readers will see Little Bill as their friend and enjoy his real-life adventures.

Happy reading!
