    One thought on “My Daddy, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.”

    1. 1. "Riding to Washington" by Gwenyth Swain an illustrated by David Geister, 2008.2. I chose "Riding to Washington" as my twin text because it shows a different perspective on the Civil Rights time period. This is probably the first time many will be learning about the time period, so I think it is very important to balance a non-fiction story with a young African American male character with a partner text about a young, caucasian female character. In each book, the children are gaining insight [...]

    5. Having a famous dad during a time of protest and unrest couldn’t have been easy for a young boy growing up in the south. But, Martin Luther King III, or Marty as he was called so not to be confused with his famous dad, learned to be unafraid and stand tall.

    9. I LOVE this portrait of American hero Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. by his son Martin Luther King III! Many of us know the life and mission of Dr. King's life to bring equality to all Americans. However, this wonderful book gives us an inside look into the King household to see how this hero acted as a warm, devoted, and loving of a father.

    11. Text to Text: This book is about Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr son’s memories of him as a father.

Dr. Martin Luther King ultimately lost his life for his "Dream", but we don't often think about how much those close to him also gave to support him in this struggle. Written by his son Martin Luther King [...]

    13. This biography of Martin Luther King Jr. was written by his eldest son to portray the major points of Martin Luther King Jr.’s mission for equal rights. It is a biography because it mainly focuses on Martin Luther King Jr. even though it is narrated from the perspective of the son as a child. This book would be appropriate for all ages and definitely one that I would read aloud to my students to talk to them about civil rights issues that our nation has faced. This book is unique in that it pr [...]

    14. I'm surprised I never got across this book before. It was a touching book whereas the son of Martin Luther King Jr. describes his father and how he grew up. It was refreshing to hear about how he was loving and caring for his family. The son talks about his belief, how his family had difficulty everyday due to their skin color and what he learned from his father of words being more powerful than violence. I would read this book in class to connect with Martin Luther King Jr. as well as the topic [...]

    15. This book tells about Martin Luther King Jr. as a father written by his son Martin Luther King III. His son describes their love and bond between a son and father. He tells about growing up without engaging in violent activities-Martin Luther King Jr. did not believe in retaliation from the hands, but by the mighty power of the mouth. Also, he talks about the challenges his family went through just by the color of their skin. For a literacy lesson, students may learn about predictions based on t [...]

    16. Many stories are written about Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr but this one is special because it talks about the family life he lived--not just his work. I really enjoyed getting to see that part of his life, even if it was in this brief account. His children faced challenges not only for their skin color but also because they were related to Dr. King who was making so many "radical" changes in the United States. The illustrations are beautiful, and it is lovely to see a different side of this famou [...]

    17. Written by Martin Luther King Jr's son, this story of Martin's adult life comes from a very different perspective.

He talks of the difficulty surrounding having Dr. King as a father, and how he loved and respected him. A great example of voice and perspective as well as a biography about Dr. King. [...]

    18. While reading about the legendary Civil Rights activist Martin Luther King, Jr. my daughter and I learned that his oldest son was named after him, Martin Luther King III, and I wondered what it was like being named after such a loved and hated important man of history. This book gave me some insight to that question and was also extremely touching. I’m sure if his father could read this he would be bursting with pride. A fantastic edition to any elementary school library or classroom.

    19. Marty (Dr. King son) share his story about being the son to Dr. King. He speaks about how he and sister were treated differently from their white friends and how they had to go to another town to play. Marty tells the story of his DAD and the impact he had on the world. Because of his dad outrages spirit he and his sister and other children now have the opportunity to play together. I would use this book to speak about diversity and to encourage the students to play with other

    20. A very approachable storybook for ECE; written by Dr. MLK's son; very realistic art. Includes information about Dr. King going to jail, and his son's confusion about this. Includes some basic details about the violence directed at the civil rights movement, but no graphic imagery. Includes a story about the boys' burning toy guns they were given for Christmas, as their father (Dr. King) was non-violent.

    21. Mom rating: Good book from the perspective of martin luther king the third. It extended our knowledge on the treatment of blacks not so many years ago. Not as ingaging as i would have liked, but it did bring up important discussions with my child. 5yr old rating: "eh, its good. it's about a man who got locked in jail for trying to make changes because people are equal. They threw the guns in a fire to show they were killing all the baddnes in the world"

    22. We all remember Martin Luther King, Jr. as a man that stood up for black rights against the white. However, his little boy wrote this story about him outside of that life. How he remembered his childhood being with his daddy. Yes, he mentioned parts where his daddy was arrested for standing up for their rights but he knew daddy would be okay, and the time they did share together he cherished every minute of it.

    23. This book gives insight to Martin Luther King, Jr. as a father. His son describes him as warm and playful, but he knew what an important man he was to social change. It's so sad that Martin Luther King III was only ten years old when his father was killed. The illustrations are warm and bold, capturing the heart of both father and son. This would make a nice pairing with My Brother Martin by Christine King Farris.

    24. This text was written by MLK Jr's son. It is on a 2nd grade reading level. It helps students to see MLK Jr in a different light than they usually do. Whereas he is written about from an impersonal perspective in the other books in the set, here he is portrayed as not only a hero for all but as a personal hero of his son's.

    25. This is a love letter from a man to his father. It's sweet and sentimental. If Dr. King read this, he would have tears in his eyes. But it's lengthy and there wasn't a story to move along. Also, I didn't care the the illustrations. I have issues with other works by AG Ford. It's just not good.

    26. I've read books written by the daughters, it was good to read the point of view of the son. I appreciated the part where he said, "It wasn't always easy being the son of Martin Luther King, Jr." I imagine that is true of many children of luminaries. I enjoyed the review which identified their 'twin' recommendation. I am a fan of "3 books, 1 theme." I will and book twin to my verbiage.

    27. What a great book about the parent/ father side of Dr. Martin Luther King,Jr. This book gives the reader an intimate look at his family during an uncertain time in history.
