Martin’s Big Words

Editor's Choice

This 2002 Caldecott Honor Book is a wonderful introduction to an American icon. The beautiful art is interspersed with King’s words to create a biography that captures the interest of young readers.

“Acclaimed artist Bryan Collier depicts his subject with stunning watercolor and collage illustrations, balancing glorious recreations of stained glass windows with some of the more somber images of peace marchers and the famous bus that pitched Rosa Parks into the civil rights movement. A brief chronology and bibliography provide additional resources for readers. Here is an exquisite tribute to a world hero.” – Amazon Review
