My Brother Martin: A Sister Remembers Growing Up with the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. by Christine King Farris

Today would have been Martin Luther King, Jr's 81st birthday. The actual holiday isn't until Monday but I thought it would be appropriate to write about him on his actual birthday.

My Brother Martin by Christine King Farris & illustrated by Chris Soentpiet is my favorite book about the famed civil rights leader. I really like it because it is so personal. It is about a sister remembering her brother and all he meant to her. It makes MLK very real and approachable for children. This beautifully illustrated book is a must have for any child.
