« I have a dream that one day my four children will live in a nation where they will not be judged for the color of their skin, but for their character.»
Martin Luther King was brought up in a family of pastors. One day a friend invited him to play at his house, but the boy's mother refused to let Martin in because of the color of his skin. He then realized that something was wrong. He vowed that when he grew up he would fight injustices, and that he would do so with the most formidable weapon: words. Today, his name is associated with the birth of the great anti-racial segregation movement in the United States.

De petite à grande: an inspiring collection for children!
These stories contain incredible facts not drawn from the imagination of the authors, but from reality itself. These stories include a good diversity of qualifiers that will always expand the vocabulary of children. Indeed, the women and men in the stories are brave, enterprising, persevering, righteous, etc. So they don't just think, they go for it too, and that's what is most inspiring! The illustrations, neat and warm, blend perfectly with the poetic narration. Each album ends with a biographical sheet allowing to learn more about the life of the personality in question, which is a very nice addition for parents or educators wanting to prolong the reading.
