Luther King Jr told from the perspective of his son Themes are compassion love and fighting for a good cause The illustrations are colorful and powerful This would be a good book to read around Martin Luther King Jr day 1 Riding to Washington by Gwenyth Swain an illustrated by David Geister 20082 I chose Riding to Washington as my twin text because it shows a different perspective on the Civil Rights time period This is probably the first time many will be learning about the time period so I think it is very important to balance a non fiction story with a young African American male character with a partner text about a young caucasian female character In each book the children are gaining insight and perspective on a situation much larger than themselves and both texts show growth and maturity as well which is never a bad topic to reiterate with children3 This book utilizes two structures Description and Chronological seuence Martin Luther King III describes his childhood as he slowly recognizes and respects his father's mission A short epilogue describes how Martin Luther King Jr died and also discusses the respect he still holds for his father A Venn Diagram would be a great activity to connect these two texts I can just imagine students pointing out the different experiences Martin Luther King III and Janie had in these books There were also a handful of moments where they had similar realizations or learning experiences and a Venn Diagram would be the perfect way to point out those very important lessons 4 June 1 2013 Booklist This is another great book told my the perspective of the son of Martin Luther King We read the book that was told by his sister and then the book that was told my his son and compared and contrasted the infomation in the two book and talked about why the stories are different when they are told from a different perspective Touching glimpse into the family life of Martin Luther King Jr I enjoyed looking at the unfinished F G illustrations and I look forward to seeing the completed work This book is written for ages 4 8 around a Lexile level of AD680L It was written by Martin Luther King III “Marty” the son of Dr Martin Luther King Jr in the beginning of this book he states “This is a book about my daddy what it was like to live with him and how much I loved him” Throughout the book he does just that he talks about his everyday life and how having Dr King as a father influenced him From being afraid that people won’t like him because of who his father is to destroying their toy gun because they were practicing nonviolence at home as well He tells this story through very proud eyes and you can really feel how much he loved his father throughout The Illustrations are beautifully done to reinforce the emotions and capture this love throughout I love that this memoir is told from a child’s perspective because it makes it relatable for the young readers They can understand that this issue wasn’t just an “adult issue” it affected everyone Often children don’t understand the depth of issues going on around them and how people are working for change and the impact that has Marty does a great job of showing a big part of what Dr King stood for that we have to stick to our morals and beliefs even when its hard and when everyone around us is doing other things it’s important to hold true to ourselves in order to influence others to do the same and make the world a better place Having a famous dad during a time of protest and unrest couldn’t have been easy for a young boy growing up in the south But Martin Luther King III or Marty as he was called so not to be confused with his famous dad learned to be unafraid and stand tall He was afraid every time his dad was arrested or went to march When his dad was home he was just that dad Marty learned that nonviolence was the best way to help so many peopleReaders are invited into the life of Dr Martin Luther King Jr through the eyes of his son Readers can learn about the marches and the cause that reached across a nation Parents and teachers can use this as a tool to talk about the Civil Rights movement life in the south and family values This book written by Martin Luther King Jr talked about Martin Luther King Jr as a father written by his son He describes the warm devote and love between a son and father in the context of his family The illustration are done by A G Ford who is the winner of an NAACP Image Award is the illustrator of the New York Times bestseller Barack This book is appropriate for children 7 and up I loved this book It was through the perspective of his son Martin Luther King III He wrote from his childhood perspective He discussed about the fact of what it was like growing up with his father He said that when his father came home from work he acted as a normal father He also wrote about how his dad's work ended him in jail and how it effected his childhood It was a pretty lengthy book A wonderful book about Dr Martin Luther King Jr written from the perspective of his son as a child It helps make difficult concepts of race and segregation easier for my first and second graders to understand I read it to my students every year Diverse Powerful images that showed Dr King as both a father and as a leader Relatable tone for young children and a strong message of the importance of judging by character and not by skin color about helping others and family
