Margo's Musings: Words For Peace ✌


Today, Margo is excited to spotlight a wonderful book that we reviewed last year. Martin's Big Words written by Doreen Rappaport and illustrated by Bryan Collier is a treasure. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s powerful message is masterfully crafted in this intricate collage of history. The simple words and complex illustrations set the scene in time, and the words resonate within us all. This beautiful children's picture book captures the story perfectly! ~ F


*The DMS was lucky enough to get to meet the illustrator, Bryan Collier at the 2012 UCONN Children's Book Fair
