Happy Birthday, Martin Luther King

Written by Jean Marzolla • Illustrated by J. Brian Pinkney

This book is about a man named Martin Luther King Jr. When a black kid was fighting with a white kid Martin Luther King will tell them to shake hands and say sorry. Read to find out more about him.

My favorite part is when Martin Luther King solved problems with the kids. I like this part because he solved problems. He was a great man because he helped people with everything. This book was special because he was black and other people didn't like him, but he told the white people and black people to get along.

I recommend this book to second graders because I think that they will like it.
