m is for martin luther king jr books

we’re full swing into our week of honoring dr martin luther king jr.  a couple of my favorite read alouds:

i read the first one most often.  i wish it was bigger than a board book.  the text seems to simplify and clarify the reality.


Martin Luther King Jr. Day (Ready-to-Read. Level 1)

our week has had conversation on guns and shooting (including a preschooler sharing about the tragedy in arizona), making brown paint out of the rainbow colors, painting, painting, painting, listening to “my own two hands” by jack johnson/ben harper, a lot of “THAT’S NOT FAIR” when describing the life and times of dr king.  this is one time i appreciate the phrase, “that’s not fair.”

still to come:  dr king collage faces, listening to “i have a dream,” coming up with our own slogans for a peace march, and more dreaming to keep the dream alive.  stay tuned.
