My First LPBD Board Book - Martin Luther King Jr.quarto
Martin Luther King Jr is the iconic American civil rights activist, now available as a board book in the Little People, Big Dreams series. With stylish and quirky illustrations, this empowering series celebrates the important life stories of inspiring people of the world. From artists to scientists, all of them went on to achieve incredible things, yet all of them began life as a little child with a dream.
Little Martin grew up in a family of preachers: his dad, his uncle, his grandfather was a preacher… so maybe he’d become a great preacher too. One day, a friend invited him to play at his house. Martin was shocked when his mother wouldn’t let him in because he was black. That day he realized there was something terribly unfair going on. Martin believed that no one should remain silent and accept something if it's wrong. And he promised himself that – when he grew up – he’d fight injustice with the most powerful weapon of all: words.
Now in board book format for little hands, and told in simpler sentences, it's perfect to read out loud to little dreamers. These books make the lives of these role models accessible for the youngest children, providing a powerful message to inspire the next generation of outstanding people who will change the world!
