Martin Luther King, Jr. My Itty-Bitty Bio


  1. These are awesome, educational and inspirational books about the greatest Civil Rights leader ever known! I’m in awe of the man’s strength through peace approach.

  2. This is a great list of books on Martin Luther King. My kids have a few of these books and have passed them down now to our grandkids. It’s so important that our children learn the history of Mr. King, to be honest I wish they would discuss him more to our children in school.

  3. This is a great list. I love when the art is attractive to kids so they want to read history!

  4. Those look like great books. My daughter and her friend (4th grade) just put together a presentation on MLK for their class!

  5. Desiree Lopez says

    As a homeschooling Mom I love to find biographical books that are age appropriate for my kids. I think the kids learn so much better from the colorful art and fun story telling than from textbooks that seem boring.
