All Aboard Reading!

On August 28, 1963, more than 250,000 people came to the nation's capital. They came by plane, by bus, by car--even on roller-skates--to speak out against segregation and to demand equal rights for everyone. They also came to hear the words of a very special leader, Martin Luther King, Jr. Told with a wonderful immediacy, this book captures the spirit of this landmark day in American history and brings Dr. King's "I Have a Dream" speech to vivid life for young children.

Frances E. Ruffin has written many other biographies, including Frederick Douglass: Rising up from Slavery, Molly Pitcher, and Meet Lois Lowry

Stephen Marchesi lives in Croton-on-Hudson, NY.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 1-3-This series entry covers the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom of August 28, 1963, and includes a brief historical perspective on the segregation and discrimination that preceded this event. One high point is the excellent and easy-to-understand description in words and pictures of Dr. King's "I Have a Dream" speech. Ruffin's clear, readable text is a fine example of how short, simple sentences can be used effectively to tell a complex story. A good model for nonfiction picture books, this title uses numerous informative illustrations to supplement a spare but factual text. The illustrations are a combination of vintage black-and-white photographs and expressive full-color paintings. A must-purchase for both school and public libraries.-Eunice Weech, M. L. King Elementary School, Urbana, IL
