Little People Big Dreams : Martin Luther King Jr
This mini biography introduces children to the life of Martin Luther King, Jr., 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 and Martin was shocked when his mother wouldn't let him in because he was black. 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 would fight for what was right with the most powerful weapon of all: words.
The Little People Big Dreams book series tells us about the inspiring lives of artists, designers, activists and scientists in a child-friendly way, telling their individual stories from childhood when they started out with a dream. Each book has a biographical timeline at the back with historical photographs and extra facts.
