Talking with Kids about Martin Luther King, Jr., Activism, and Volunteerism

From Reading Rockets:

Martin Luther King, Jr. Day celebrates the life and civil rights work of Dr. King. In 1994, the holiday was officially recognized as a National Day of Service where volunteers across the country work together to make a difference in their communities. The titles include children’s books about Dr. King, fiction and nonfiction books about ordinary people who stand up for what’s right, and stories about helping others and giving back.

You’re sure to find some great books here to share with your children, grandchildren, or students! Stay safe and be well! ~Becky

  1. When I was teaching, I read several of these books to my students during Black History Month in February. Covid has cut into my volunteer time—one of the best parts of retirement.

  2. EXCELLENT list of MLK books and MLK-relevant books! Thank you for the link, Becky!

    (I did a phone interview with Coretta Scott King in the mid-1980s about a syndicated newspaper column she had begun writing. She had many great things to say.)

  3. What a great collection. Thanks, Becky. Passed it on to my friends with kids – this is the kind of stuff they like to know.

    BTW – different subject – I got the Silk almond milk creamer with no sugar. Gotta say – yech. I could pour it down the drain, but am still contemplating if there’s anything short of that I could do, like maybe mix it half and half with milk. Tx. for the reco. – I tried!
