January Book of the Month!
This month we have a special treat. We start the new year with a book called "I Have A Dream". Its an excerpt from Dr. Martin Luther King's most famous speech. The beautiful illustrations were created by Kadir Nelson. This book also comes with a CD containing the complete "I Have A Dream Speech" delivered by Dr. King on August 28th in 1963. This book reminds us of the struggle for equality that many Americans have faced and many still strive to fully realize. As you read / listen to this book, notice the spirit of hope and a desire for a better America that permeates each line. What better ideal to begin a new year with? Students, ask your parents and grandparents if they remember this speech. Perhaps they were there when Dr. King delivered this speech.
