CFL Weekly

              This week we celebrate the life and vision of human rights leader, Martin Luther King, Jr. Over 50 years after he gave his famous “I Have a Dream” speech, his words remain powerful, urging us to fight for a world filled with love and equality for our children. In keeping with his dream, the Canton Free Library is highlighting books about the civil rights movement.

            Doreen Rappaport’s Martin’s Big Words: The Life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is an excellent biography to introduce our young patrons to the history of this great American leader. The author combines Martin Luther King, Jr.’s own words with a simple narrative of his life. This picture book biography is illustrated with watercolor and collage artwork by acclaimed artist Bryan Collier.
