My Daddy Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

An account of the author’s brief years shared with his civil rights leader father offers insight into their special bond, their separation during Dr. King’s imprisonment, and the author’s five-year-old witness to the famous “I Have a Dream” speech.

Rating: 4****

This would make a better book for adults. There are several references to first-hand incidents Martin Luther King III experienced but because it’s a children’s story he only mentions them. It does open a great dialogue for discussion though with younger children.
