On August 28, 1963, a remarkable event took place--more than 250,000 people gathered in our nation's capital to participate in the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. The march began at the Washington Monument and ended with a rally at the Lincoln Memorial, where Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his  historic “I Have a Dream” speech, advocating racial harmony. Many words have been written about that day, but few so delicate and powerful as those presented here by award-winning author and illustrator Shane W. Evans. When combined with his simple yet compelling illustrations, the thrill of the day is brought to life for even the youngest reader to experience.

I am in my third year of teaching elementary; my 1st year I taught 2nd, then moved to an art position for half the year and finally to third. I teach at a school serving over 75% of low-income families.

I am working on a goal for my students to reach 1,000 books by the end of their third grade year.

While serving an urban community, it is significant that they are aware of their history and what was done for them. Most people know who MLK is but they are unaware of the events that made him who he is, this book can create an awareness in my students.

My class is just beginning third grade. They are coming to me with a low ELA ability and I want to help build that up which I can do through reading.
