    This is a great book to introduce children to the powerful message of Martin Luther King Jr. The pictures are beautiful and the words are simple enough for all to understand. I like the use of call-out text to emphasize his message and "big words." I read it to several classes, Pre-K through 1st and they all found it interesting and inspiring.

    Doreen Rapport did an amazing job of sharing some of the most important events in the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. I thought this was a rather unique way of telling the story of a person's life. Rapport word choice in this book is extremely kid friendly and can be understood by most young readers (2nd grade and up). The illustrations are rich with color and bring the words in this story to life. Job well done!

    I think this is an excellent book to read to students to help them understand about the Civil Rights Movement, inequality, and the life of Martin Luther King, Jr. The book is illustrated beautifully with many colorful pictures that capture your attention and shows the history of the big changes that occurred in America. It is filled with lots of information and dates of events that happened during that time period and really opens up the way for discussion about this topic. I would recommend this book to anyone who would like to know about the Civil Rights Movement and the inequality of African Americans as well as many others.

    This picture-book biography is an excellent and accessible introduction for young readers to learn about one of the world's most influential leaders, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Doreen Rappaport weaves the immortal words of Dr. King into a captivating narrative to tell the story of his life.

    For younger children ready to read more independently this is a nice introduction to civil rights and an African American leader. I appreciated this book doesn't gloss over history or glorify Martin Luther King, Jr. or the civil rights movement. The text is appropriate for a third-sixth grader. I read part of it aloud to a kindergartener who asked about the book. They enjoyed it and listened to a chapter. The artwork is detailed and adds to the book.

    This story is a biography about the life of Martin Luther King. The story really focus on non-violence. I loved this book because it showed important times in Martin Luther King's life. I think this story would be great from children of all ages. This story can make children be more aware of our history. I feel sometimes we forget and this story is just another step to broaden our new generations mind.

    I loved this book by Doreen Rappaport. First, I loved the illustrations. They were very big and detailed. This made it appealing to the eye and the expressions of each character were clear. For example, you can see on Martin's face that he is upset when talking about reading the white only signs. I also loved the sequence of events in the story, I thought it flowed very nicely. The book didn't jump right into Martin's speech but rather talked about him growing up and seeing the "white only" signs to him becoming a pastor, to the Rosa Parks story, and finally about his journey in politics. Lastly, I enjoyed the quotes throughout the story. At the end of each page was an inspirational quote from Martin. For example one of the quotes was "everyone can be great." The overall idea of the story was to inform children about Martin's experience and to stand up for what you believe in even if it will challenge others.

    This is a informational biography about the life of Martin Luther King, Jr. The book tell his life story, beginning from when he was a young boy, all the way through the day he dies. The book also shares what kind of impacts that Martin and people like him have had in history for African Americans.

    This book is an excellent introduction to the biography of Martin Luther King Jr. I really liked this book because it was a pictorial biography that provided great descriptions and inspirational quotes on each page such as "You are as good as anyone" or "Everyone can be great". The story had an excellent progression from Martin's childhood to the day he died, but did not cut short on any of the amazing things that he accomplished. The illustrations were beautiful and the style of the pictures only enhanced the story's message even more. This book was well organized and even provided a list of important dates in Martin Luther King's life at the end of the story. The big idea of this story is too explain the main details of his life and to show children how much of an inspiration he was to many people in the world.

    Young children can learn about what of our nation's most famous individuals - it's a great introduction to learning about famous people. It also covers themes such as compassion and caring about others.

    I bought this book today because I have always loved Martin Luther King, Jr....

    It was an easy read with beautiful pictures...A well written summary of what he went through from childhood through his death and when MLK day was created and became a national holiday. It's great for children of about the age of about 8 and older (depending on the child)...It does say that he was shot and died, but nothing more specific than that. And of course, it doesn't show him dead...

    Summary: This book is about Martin Luther King Jr. and his life. It explains the discrimination that he witnessed and had to encounter. This book shows the courage that MLK Jr. had during his life time and the positive changes that brought upon our country. It told about how even though he was shot his but his words are still alive even today.Personal Reaction: I think that all children need to learn about MLK Jr. and all of the positive change he helped bring to America. He was such a great man and positive figure.Classroom Extensions: 1) I would use this book to teach children about MLK Jr. and his importance in the United States. 2) I would have the children each write their own two or three sentence speech and read it in front of the classroom.

    Martin's Big Words is a great book about MLK's life told through quotes from some of his greatest speeches. The writing is informational and succinct, and quickly moves from page to page. The illustrations are moving, and really tell the tale of struggle- this helps to really draw the reader into the book and keeps them interested. Because the book is told from his quotes, this biographical picture book is a great spin on the genre.

    This is a picture book biography of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Reading this book would be a great way to learn about Dr. King. It has wonderful illustrations and I think it does a great job of explaining a tough topic for young children.

    Although the story is not new the perspective and style is done wonderfully. It is in a autobiographical and biographical combination of the life and death of the civil rights leader. The illustrations are great and colorful but the perspective story told is refreshing so the reader is both participant and observer. Book is good to use for promote social justice, African American leader, biography, autobiography, first person story and civil rights.

    This story was very educational and informative. I liked the idea of using a picture book to teach children about such a iconic civil rights activist, but there were a few things in the story I did not like. For example, I did not like how the author put so much information on one page. This made it harder for the reader to stay focused and attentive on the information they were learning. I think that the author should have tried to use less text on each page or at least space it out more.

    Martin's Big Words:The Life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is and informational picture book. This book is a partial biography that teaches about the life of Martin Luther King Jr. This book also informs about diversity and segregation. This tells about Rosa Park's refusal to move her seat on the bus and the bus boycotts. For 381 days people walked to work and Martin walked with them and prayed with him. He taught and preached the ways of non-violence. Many were hurt and killed in this journey to civil rights but they didn't fight back. Martin gave his "I have a dream" speech and ten years later segregation ended.This would be a good book to use in a classroom when learning about the civil rights movement. This would be a good book to pair with Rosa by Nikki Giovanni. Students could learn more about Martin Luther King Jr. by reading other books about his life.

    A powerful portrayal of King's life, beautifully delivered, for even the youngest elementary students. The text and Bryan Collier's collage-style illustrations complement each other wonderfully.

    This multiple-award winning biography provides an introduction for kids to learn about of Martin Luther King, Jr. From Dr. King's youth, he looked up to his preacher father and vowed one day to "get big words, too." The author shares his words, combining them with her own text to tell his life story. In concluding, the author relates how he was killed, but points out that "His big words are alive for us today." A chronology and bibliography provide additional resources for older readers.Reading level: Ages 5 and up

    Summary: The author uses her words and the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. to tell the story of his life. It talks about King's big words "I had a dream" whose dream changed America.Personal Reaction: This book shows how King never gave up on his dream and how he fought, not with violence, for civil rights of many people. It was simple reading from being a little boy to a man. I loved the illustrations; they were portray his life and what trials he and others went through.Classroom Extension Ideas: Show pictures and read more about him on Martin Luther King Day.

    This is a powerful book. I really enjoyed the way it was written and the last two lines in particular. (Don't worry, I won't give them away!) It clearly depicts Martin Luther King, Jr.'s life and his impact on the world. I would use this in a unit on civil rights and civil disobedience. It is a poignant tale that gives students a way to relate to a great leader of history. Reading level: Grade 2.5

    This book is so good! I have read the book to students. They were completely entranced by the book. I teach English language learners so they do not know American history. My African students in particular were facinated by the history presented in the book and were very respectful while I read. I have a presentation of Martin Luther King Jr. in my classroom and the students would walk with me to the presentation area and ask questions about the pictures and the history depicted in them. They loved a drawing of Martin in the Birmingham jail and the Nobel Peace Prize he won. This book helped me present an important person to my students in a way that was meaningful and memorable.

    This book does a wonderful job with incorporating Dr. King's quotes and has a great combination of painted pictures and photograph collages. The ending is a bit abrupt (without discussing why someone would ever want to kill him), but the last page has a large impact by just saying that his messages live for us today. This book is a great introduction to the life and legacy of MLK Jr. and while the amount of text is not substantial, I think that if this book were to be read aloud would help students understand his legacy.
  • (5/5)
    Great book to show the students how important words and actions are. Starts by saying that Martin luther king's Mother told him always that " You are as good as anyone "the one that I like the most is how he wanted people to know that " hate cannot drive out hate only Love can do that". the author tells all the historic aspects of the time and ends the books by saying that His big words are alive for us today!!!!

    5Q5PAn accessible look at Dr. King, with warm, inviting illustrations. Good basic information (particularly appended), but not too heavy for young readers. Rappaport doesn't soften up the story of Dr. King overly, but still leaves it appropriate to picture book aged audiences - not an easy balance, but deftly attained here.

    An eloquent, simple text about the life of Martin Luther King, Jr. It presents facts without cumbersome dates and heavy text. The illustrations are truly captivating. Students will enjoy interacting with the "big words."

    This is an awesome social studies text. This book tells the life story of MLK through collage style pictures and quotes from the man himself. It is a touching tale that will engage and teach readers of all ages.
