It’s not just a day off of school. In the United States, today is Martin Luther King Jr. Day, which celebrates the life and achievements of an American civil rights leader and icon. It’s a wonderful idea to have a few of these books around to remind our children and ourselves of the struggle Martin Luther King Jr. represented, the non-violent tactics he preached and the vision he had for the future of our country.
