"Free At Last" is the story of Martin Luther King Jr. The book explains his childhood and the way the world worked at that time. This story tells of MLK's life up until his death. This book does a good job of letting children know the state of the race war at that time and is a very important thing

for children to know. The first chapter is called "Black in a White World" so it introduces children to the life MLK had to experience and does a good job of not being oppressive. This time in history is very important for children to know so they appreciate what they have more, therefore I highly recommend this book.

information, and they feel as if they have discovered it themselves. This book is also great because it has more words than pictures, but the pictures that are in the book are actual pictures from the events and time period.
