Books for Martin Luther King Jr. Day

In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. we've compiled a list of books that celebrate his life, his dream, and his tireless efforts to peacefully bring an end to segregation and to establish freedom and justice for all Americans. We've included picture books to read to young children, a Step Up book for emerging readers, and an engaging biography for older readers. We invite you to spend some time this Martin Luther King Jr. Day reading about this man who dreamed that his children "will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character."
