Synopsis

What Was Your Dream, Dr. King? And Other Questions About Martin Luther King, Jr by Mary Kay Carson

This book is suitable for children aged 7 years and up. Why were schools, drinking fountains and movie theatres segregated by race? Why did more than 250,000 people march in Washington, DC in 1963? What was Martin Luther King, Jr.'s big dream and has it come true? All of these and other must-know questions about the civil rights hero are answered in this engaging new book.

Reviews

Utilizing an inviting question-and-answer format, Carson presents an overview of Dr. King's life, endeavors, and beliefs, providing historical context with clear explanations of segregation and defining moments in the civil rights movement. Straightforward and accessible, the text is sprinkled with primary quotes and accompanied by sepia-toned paintings. -- School Library Journal
