Little People, Big Dreams: Martin Luther King Jr by Maria Isabel Sanchez Vegara
From the critically-acclaimed, bestselling series, Little People, BIG DREAMS, discover the life of Martin Luther King Jr., the inspiring minister and civil rights activist. Little Martin grew up in a family of preachers and thought maybe he'd become a great preacher too. One day, a friend invited him to play at his house. Martin was shocked when his mother wouldn't let him in because he was black. That day he realized there was something terribly unfair going on. Martin believed that no one should remain silent and accept something if it's wrong. And he promised himself that, when he grew up, he'd fight injustice with the most powerful weapon of all: words.
