Entertainment Weekly - Noelene Clark

"With a focus on Martin Luther King Jr.’s early years, this biography serves as a good reminder that every hero begins as a child. Charming, colorful illustrations depict young Martin rollerskating with other children in his Atlanta neighborhood, playing basketball at the local fire station with kids of all races, riding the bus and attending church with his mother, quoting scripture for his father at the dinner table, and learning the lessons that would set him on the path to become a minister and one of the most prominent and influential leaders of the Civil Rights Movement." - Entertainment Weekly
