Martin Luther King Jr. Books for Kids

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was a great man that helped the civil rights movement tremendously. His peaceful but firm approach to getting equal rights for African Americans is something I’ve always admired. His “I have a dream” speech gives me cold chills every time I hear it. Each January, when America celebrates MLK Day, I try to pull out some of my favorite books about this civil rights activist and talk about equality. If you’re looking for some good books about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. to read to your kids or students then this list of Martin Luther King Jr. books for kids is for you!
