Horace King: Bridge Builder

I blogged at the Primary Peach about one of the most respected bridge builders of the south in the 19th century.  I have always been fascinated by Horace King’s accomplishments and thoroughly enjoyed researching about his life and his works.

Martin Luther King: A Book to Help Explain Social Injustices of the Past to Little Learners

A Lesson for Martin Luther King

Looking for a book to share with your class about Martin Luther King?  Explaining the social injustices of the past in a developmentally appropriate manner can be difficult.  This book describes a childhood incident in Martin Luther King’s life that will help little learners begin to develop an insight of the inequalities that were accepted by many at the time.  Children will immediately recognize how unfair it is that young Martin’s friend Bobby is forbidden to play with Martin and that they must attend different schools.

The book is one of a series of books about the Childhood of Famous Americans.  The story is beautifully illustrated.  The Book is a Level 2 book of the Ready To Read books.
