This board book version ofMartin Luther King Jr.—from the critically acclaimed, multimillion-copy best-selling Little People, BIG DREAMS series—introduces the youngest dreamers to the inspiring minister and civil rights activist.
Little Martin grew up in a family of preachers: his dad was a preacher, his uncle was a preacher, his grandfather was a preacher… so maybe he’d become a great preacher too.
One day, a friend invited him to play at his house. Martin was shocked when his mother wouldn’t let him in because he was black. That day he realized there was something terribly unfair going on.
Martin believed that no one should remain silent and accept something if it's wrong. And he promised himself that – when he grew up –he’d fight injustice with the most powerful weapon of all: words.
Babies and toddlers will love to snuggle as you read to them the engaging story of this extraordinary activist and titan of the civil rights movement, and will also enjoy exploring the stylish and quirky illustrations of this sturdy board book on their own.
