Martin’s Dream Day by Kitty Kelly - OPTIONAL

Kelly, Kitty Martin’s Dream Day, photographs by Stanley Tretick.  Atheneum (Simon), 2017.  $18. 

Using period photographs by Stanley Tretick, Kitty Kelly shows the events leading up to and during Martin Luther King Jr.’s famous “I Have a Dream” speech on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.  The text is a little wordy for elementary students.  Its really more suited to a middle school or high school level – to show the text while talking about the events, perhaps.

MS, HS – OPTIONAL.  Cindy, Library Teacher
