My daughter Adelaide (6 years old) is very impressed with Martin Luther King, Jr. She was pretty excited to find a book about him that was written at her level. Here is a lightly edited version of her brief review:

The book was about Dr. King trying to make slavery stop! And Dr. King was put in jail many times. I learned that. I read it because I love history and hearing about people’s lives.

It might not stand up to fact checking, but I thought it was pretty perceptive.
