Yes, having a day off from school is exciting for the kids, but on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day, I’d also like for them to reflect upon the reason they are getting a day away from lessons.
And even though they are old enough to have heard Dr. King’s I Have a Dream speech a few times, there is a new book that brings it to life with such compelling illustrations, I don’t think they’ll mind cracking a book today.
The recently released I Have a Dream
book and CD
take the unforgettable words of Martin Luther King Jr. and make them even more powerful with the illustrations of Kadir Nelson.
