From Booklist:

K-Gr. 2. Like Jacqueline Woodson's picture book The Other Side (2001), Patrick's quiet story, part of the Ready-to-Read Childhood of Famous Americans series, tells of childhood friendship threatened by adult prejudice at the time of segregation. This happens to be a true story--about a boy who grew up to be the great civil rights leader. The spare text tells how Martin's white friend says they can't play together anymore: "Papa says colored and white can't mix." True to the period, Pate's realistic pastel illustrations show Martin's loneliness when his friend turns away from him. In contrast is the warm support in Martin's family. They talk about segregation, his dad says that "friendship has no color," and Martin decides that he will change the rules and change people's minds. The spare text and moving pictures bring home the hard lesson, the hurt of the child, and the strength Martin found. Hazel Rochman
