Praise

New York Times Book Review
"Rappaport's text is both simple and beautifully written, and reflects a deep commitment to the subject....Collier's art adds a dramatic and emotional counterpoint to the restraint of Rappaport's writing, and I think he succeeds in creating an appropriately serious and important-looking book to depict Martin Luther King's timeless ideas." - James McMullan 11/18/2001

Riverbank Review
"This spare and elegant portrayal reaches beyond the essential facts of King's life and achievements to communicate, especially to young readers, the powerful legacy of those words." - Christine Alfano Spring 2002

Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"This is powerful stuff, big stuff, and children privileged to share MARTIN'S BIG WORDS with classmates or family will begin to understand that January 15th isn't just another day off." - Elizabeth Bush January 2002
