I am Martin Luther King, Jr. by Brad Meltzer

Every kid should know about and be inspired by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.. This picture book biography from the fantastic “Ordinary People Change the World” series is one of our favorites. Since reading it, our almost-7-year olds have been talking about “nonviolent resistance” — changing the world with peace and love. (And to keep it going, check out the Rosa Parks and Gandhi books from the same series.) There’s no better way to encourage kids to dream big.
