I really love these books. I  have all 4 of them and can’t wait to get the rest of them. I like the part in the back of the book where you have new words. I learned a lot of new big words. I like the pictures too.

Reading this book series has been a blessing. Jacqueline James has conducted research and interviewed 100's of individuals in order to give students, teachers and  parents an inspirational summary of the roles Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s friends played in his rise to prominence. As an educator and activist, I found myself buried in each book and could not put them down.
