Description:

The award-winning biography of civil rights icon and leader, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

When Martin was growing up he saw the signs WHITE ONLY everywhere in his hometown. Every time he read the words, he felt bad. Until he remembered what his mother told him:

"You are as good as anyone."

When Martin grew up, he became a minister like his father. And he used the big words he had heard as a child from his parents and from the Bible:

"Everyone can be great."

And he was.

To tell the story this great American hero's life and times, Doreen Rappaport weaves her words and the "big words" of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., into a captivating, emotional narrative. Illustrated by acclaimed artist Bryan Collier with stunning, shimmering collage art, Martin's Big Words is an unforgettable portrait of a man whose dream changed America, and the world, forever.
