Horn Book Review

These easy-reader biographies cover major life events: birth, schooling, and adult accomplishments. Lincoln is geared toward newly independent readers; King provides more detail for confident readers. In both, simple sentences and vocabulary along with plenty of text boxes, photos, and archival images make for an energetic if busy design. King includes an index. Timeline. Glos. (c) Copyright 2013.

Booklist Review

This Level 3 reader begins with just the right question for the intended audience: Who was Martin Luther King, Jr.? Then, young readers are asked to imagine living in a time when black and white children couldn't swim in the same pools or attend the same schools. In nine sections (not numbered), the book, in bright visuals and engaging text, offers up information about Dr. King's childhood, his studies, and, of course, his work on behalf of equal rights. There are 8 Awesome Facts about Dr. King, including this impressive stat: he gave 2,500 speeches during the last 11 years of his life. The large typeface and varied sentence structure is ideal for emergent readers, and the text is broken up frequently by stirring period photos, words to know, and a time line. A concluding quiz tests comprehension, and a pictorial glossary will help reinforce vocabulary. A graphically engaging introduction to a visionary who, luckily, left us his words to remember him by. This also offers kids the opportunity to become a Super Reader via an online rewards program.--Kelley, Ann Copyright 2010 Booklist
