Book Review


This is another wonderful entry in the Pocket Bios series. It is lengthier than other Pocket Bios, targeting a slightly older audience, but the information is presented in a clear and engaging manner which makes it fun to learn about these bastions of US history. The book follows the life of Martin Luther King Jr. and gives the major details about his personal life, his work in the civil rights movement, and his assassination. It has a neat timeline at the end of the novel that helps contextualize the content provided.
