    Synthesis: This book was a cross between a chapter book and a picture book. It was full of information and had a large amount of text, but was spaced out in an organized and simple banner with specific chapters as well as pictures to accompany the text. It discussed the life of Martin Luther King Jr. from birth all the way to death as well as an in depth discussion of slavery, segregation, and racial discrimination at the end.

It was full of information and had a large amount of text, but was spaced out in an organized and simple banner with specific chapters as well as pictures to accompany the text. It discussed the life of Martin Luther King Jr. from birth all the way to death as well as an in depth discussion of slavery, segregation, and racial discrimination at the end. This book, although a biography, could also be seen as a historical fiction book because of it's relevance and information on the Civil Rights Movement (MLK Jr. being a significant historical figure in relation to the Civil Rights movement). Ideas for Classroom use: I would use this text in social studies when discussing historical figures, as an option for a book report on a specific person, or during black history month to discuss the important contributions made by Martin Luther King Jr. to our society in Civil Rights and equality. It could also spark discussion about how much our society's views have changed and how there is still room for us to grow (what inequalities still exist?). Since the book is lengthy, I could even just choose select chapters to read from instead of the entire book. I could read only chapter 6, "I Have a Dream," if I only wanted to focus on his infamous speech or I could read only the last chapter, "Free at Last," if I only wanted to focus on the impact he had on our society. Why it was a WOW book: I enjoyed this book for several reasons. For one, I really admire Martin Luther King Jr. and everything he did and sacrificed for our country and equality. I also like the way the book is set up in a simple manner yet is packed with a ton of relevant information. It is written in a kid friendly manner so that the information can be better accessed and understood by elementary students. The pictures also added to the experience by providing visuals and breaks in the lengthy text.
