Books For Teaching Children About Martin Luther King Jr.

Texts and Tunes: Books About Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Teaching children about historical figures can be stressful because it's important to provide them with plenty of back story and ample perspective, which is why I rely on books to help me educate my children about weighty subjects. I'm crystal clear on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s immeasurable legacy and effect on our country and culture, but when my children start asking questions I like to provide them with age appropriate story lines, anecdotes they can relate to and pretty pictures.

With Martin Luther King, Jr. Day coming up now is the opportune time to share Dr. King's dream with your lil one's inquisitive mind. I like illustrated biography, A Picture Book of Martin Luther King, Jr. ($7), which tells the tale of the Baptist minister and civil rights leader whose philosophy and practice of nonviolent civil disobedience helped win battles for equal rights.
