El pequeño Martin creció en una familia de predicadores: su padre era predicador, su tío era predicador, su abuelo era predicador… así que tal vez él también se convertiría en un gran predicador. Un día, un amigo lo invitó a jugar a su casa. Martin se sorprendió cuando su madre no lo dejó entrar porque era negro. Ese día se dio cuenta de que algo terriblemente injusto estaba pasando. Martin creía que nadie debería quedarse callado y aceptar algo si está mal. Y se prometió a sí mismo que, cuando fuera mayor, lucharía contra la injusticia con el arma más poderosa de todas: las palabras. Este libro conmovedor presenta ilustraciones elegantes y extravagantes y datos adicionales en la parte posterior, incluida una cronología biográfica con fotos históricas y un perfil detallado de la vida del activista inspirador.

In this book from the critically acclaimed, multimillion-copy bestselling Little People, BIG DREAMS series, discover the life of Martin Luther King Jr., the inspiring minister and civil rights activist.

Little Martin grew up in a family of preachers: his dad was a preacher, his uncle was a preacher, his grandfather was a preacher… so maybe he’d become a great preacher too. One day, a friend invited him to play at his house. Martin was shocked when his mother wouldn’t let him in because he was black. That day he realized there was something terribly unfair going on. Martin believed that no one should remain silent and accept something if it's wrong. And he promised himself that – when he grew up – he’d fight injustice with the most powerful weapon of all: words. This moving book features stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, including a biographical timeline with historical photos and a detailed profile of the inspiring activist’s life.

Inspire the next generation of outstanding people who will change the world with Little People, BIG DREAMS!
