" I've read books written by the daughters, it was good to read the point of view of the son. I appreciated the part where he said, "It wasn't always easy being the son of Martin Luther King, Jr." I imagine that is true of many children of luminaries. I enjoyed the review which identified their 'twin' recommendation. I am a fan of "3 books, 1 theme." I will and book twin to my verbiage. " said.

" This is a love letter from a man to his father. It's sweet and sentimental. If Dr. King read this, he would have tears in his eyes. But it's lengthy and there wasn't a story to move along. Also, I didn't care the the illustrations. I have issues with other works by AG Ford. It's just not good. " said.

" This book gives insight to Martin Luther King, Jr. as a father. His son describes him as warm and playful, but he knew what an important man he was to social change. It's so sad that Martin Luther King III was only ten years old when his father was killed. The illustrations are warm and bold, capturing the heart of both father and son. This would make a nice pairing with My Brother Martin by Christine King Farris. " said.

" A very approachable storybook for ECE; written by Dr. MLK's son; very realistic art. Includes information about Dr. King going to jail, and his son's confusion about this. Includes some basic details about the violence directed at the civil rights movement, but no graphic imagery. Includes a story about the boys' burning toy guns they were given for Christmas, as their father (Dr. King) was non-violent. " said.

" While reading about the legendary Civil Rights activist Martin Luther King, Jr. my daughter and I learned that his oldest son was named after him, Martin Luther King III, and I wondered what it was like being named after such a loved and hated important man of history. This book gave me some insight to that question and was also extremely touching. I’m sure if his father could read this he would be bursting with pride. A fantastic edition to any elementary school library or classroom. " said.

"I'm surprised I never got across this book before. It was a touching book whereas the son of Martin Luther King Jr. describes his father and how he grew up. It was refreshing to hear about how he was loving and caring for his family. The son talks about his belief, how his family had difficulty everyday due to their skin color and what he learned from his father of words being more powerful than violence. I would read this book in class to connect with Martin Luther King Jr. as well as the topic of family. I would mention that students do not have to write about their father, but their role model in their life. This would be a excellent opportunity for students to discuss about their family and how they are inspired by their family or friends.
" said.

" This is a great book about MLK, written by one of his children. The story is 5 stars and the artwork 4. " said.

" A wonderful take on the amazing Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. A well written, heartfelt book describing this wonderful man through the eyes of his son. A must read for all kids and parents alike! " said.
