Book Review by Vincent, a Grade 4 Student
Book title: Who Was Martin Luther King Jr?
Written by: Bonnie Bader
Illustrated by: Elizabeth Wolf
Martin Luther King Jr. was born on January 15, 1929 in Atlanta, Georgia. Skipping two grades in school, he graduated from high school at age 15. He was married to a lady named Coretta Scott whom he met at the Boston University of Theology. Martin spoke for civil rights as a man. He led many marches and made many speeches including his famous “I have a dream” speech. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964. Even though he is dead, Martin’s dream lives on.
I think that it was fitting for Martin to do what he did. This is because he believed in peace and influenced many people with his speeches.
I really admire how Martin would always use peaceful means to communicate his message. He would never physically fight back if the response to his protests was negative.
