These pages center around Martin Luther King Jr. Day, but instead of diving into this great man's history, accomplishments and facts, it heads toward a broader direction.

It's Martin Luther King Jr. Day and the class is on a fieldtrip to learn more about what the day means. Of course, the kids are packed full of ideas and Mrs. Connor knows exactly how to grab their attention and shift their thoughts in an inspiring direction.

This is a book for those readers, who have learned enough words to handle many sentences on their own but still need practice. The words are in a larger font, nicely spaced, and kept to a minimum. There are illustrations on (almost) every page, too. Plus, it does build vocabulary gently along the way. So, it's great for beginning readers.

The students and Mrs. Connor come across with kindness and fun. The kids' responses are very natural, and Mrs. Connor has an amazingly patient and caring way of reacting to them. It shows a wholesome classroom setting with classmates, who are kind to one another, use their imagination, and will connect with many young readers. The situations and settings are familiar and, again, easy for readers to recognize and identify with. There's enough of a light humor to bring slight smiles, and the pacing moves along steadily to keep boredom away. It's a nice, simple, and quick read.

At first, I was surprised that there wasn't much information about Martin Luther King Jr. but have to admit that it wouldn't have worked well in this level of read. The very basics are explained...just what the age group can understand...and then, the author cleverly brought it into the big dream direction and left with a very inspiring message. So, kudos on that end.

It's a gentle and fun way to introduce beginning readers to the holiday while improving the reading skills in a way, which won't scare them away. I received a complimentary copy and found it well done, especially as an early reader.
