I Have a Dream
Words By: Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Paintings By: Kadir Nelson
This is not the first illustrated edition of Martin Luther King, Jr.'s iconic ''I Have a Dream'' speech, but this picture book stands a notch above others thanks to Caldecott Honor winner Kadir Nelson's beautifully rendered and sincerely moving paintings. It also comes with an audio CD of the historic 1963 speech. Still, I can't help but want a little more. While this is certainly a great way to introduce children to one of this nation's greatest speeches, I wish it had included the story of the man behind it. B+
