Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was only 25 when he helped organize the Montgomery Bus Boycott and was soon organizing black people across the country in support of the right to vote, desegregation, and other basic civil rights. Maintaining nonviolent and peaceful tactics even when his life was threatened, King was also an advocate for the poor and spoke out against racial and economic injustice until his death - from an assassin's bullet - in 1968.More

Good short bio of King - nice series for kids
I didn't read the print version, but this series lends itself well to audio, and the narrator was excellent. I enjoyed listening with my 12 year old.
No, but he was very good. He was a different narrator than the other books in the series we have listened to, but he was equally good.
We could have done so, but we ended up splitting it up over a few nights. One thing that is great about this series is that they are all fairly short, if you are looking for something that can be finished in a few drives, or a single flight. Especially with younger kids, it can be difficult to spread a longer book over a length of time.
This is one of our favorite nonfiction series for kids -- as enjoyable as a fiction listen!
