By: Cheryl Hudson, Bernette Ford, George Cephas Ford Illustrated by: George Cephas Ford
“Four African American children interact with one another in a preschool environment, exploring their facial features, skin tones, what they wear, what they do, and how they learn from and enjoy each other. A happy book and nice addition to preschool and kindergarten classrooms.”
Martin’s Big Words: The Life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
By Doreen Rappaport
“The author weaves immortal quotes from Martin Luther King Jr.’s writings and speeches into this award-winning biography for kids. The multimedia illustrations carry readers from King’s youth — when he first noticed “Whites Only” signs — through his remarkable life as a leader of the U.S. Civil Rights Movement.”
