Description: Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., dreamed of a world where children would not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. As these poetic, innocent, funny, and wise letters make clear, kids today are striving to make that dream come true. They write about their hopes and fears, and their friendships among classmates regardless of color. They also write about a hatred that persists, and about the inspiration of the man to whom these letters are addressed. Dear Dr. King does more than offer tribute to the lasting impact of a great leader. Letter by letter, it serves as an urgent and eloquent portrait of America. (64 pgs) Ages 8-12A
Ashay says, " I like this format idea (kids writing letters to Dr. King) so their voices will be heard. What a great way to honor him. Get it for the library."
