I Have a Dream by King and Kadir Nelson - ESSENTIAL

King, Martin Luther Jr. I Have A Dream, 32 pgs, Random House Children’s Books, 2012. $18.99. Language G (0 swears, 0 “f”); Mature Content: G; Violence: G. PICTURE BOOK.  

This picture book is a short synopsis of the talk by Martin Luther King Jr. as painted by the artist, Kadir Nelson.  The treat in this book is not only the photos, but a CD of the entire speech by Martin Luther King Jr. The last two pages of the book is a copy of his entire speech.  Nelson has created a must have children’s book.  It is a beautiful rendition, on the level of a child, of this world changing speech given so many years ago.
