Good. Edge wear, some light soiling to front cover; In this elegant pictorial biography of Martin Luther King Jr., author Doreen Rappaport combines her spare, lyrical text with King's own words for an effective, age-appropriate portrayal of one of the world's greatest civil rights leaders. From King's youth, when he looked up to his preacher father and vowed one day to "get big words, too, " to his death at a garbage workers' strike ("On his second day there, he was shot. He died."), Rappaport imbues the story with reverence. Acclaimed artist Bryan Collier depicts his subject with stunning watercolor and collage illustrations, balancing glorious recreations of stained glass windows with some of the more somber images of peace marchers and the famous bus that pitched Rosa Parks into the civil rights movement. A brief chronology and bibliography provide additional resources for readers. Here is an exquisite tribute to a world hero. (Ages 4 and older)--Emilie Coulter.
Good. Spine creases, wear to binding and pages from reading. May contain limited notes, underlining or highlighting that does affect the text. Possible ex library copy, that'll have the markings and stickers associated from the library. Accessories such as CD, codes, toys, may not be included.
I would recommend this book to young readers. The illustrations are expertly done and depict the story very well. With such a dark concept to grasp, Doreen Rappaport, the author, is able to simplify Martin Luther King's dream so kids are able to understand. I feel that the concept of segregation is a little difficult for children to understand and this book is able to explain more about it and how Martin Luther King Jr. was able to make a change. It is an excellent book to teach perseverance, and teaches kids to stand up for what they believe in.
