Martin Luther King, Jr. National Memorial (A Stone of Hope) by Joanne Mattern is an educational children's book that teaches young readers about the man who stood up for black people's rights. This book teaches about the important points of his life, like his famous "I have a dream" speech. The book goes on to describe how he is honoured today. It teaches about how there is a Martin Luther King, Jr. Day celebrated in January, and most importantly, it teaches about the national monument in Washington, including how it was built, who designed it, who built it, what it says, and what it looks like, among other things. Read this book to find out more.

I really enjoyed reading Martin Luther King, Jr. National Memorial (A Stone of Hope) by Joanne Mattern. The book is very educational, and teaches about a great person. The book is very well written and descriptive. I liked that the book is filled with cool facts that not many people know, including motivational, inspirational, and profound quotes by Martin Luther King, Jr. himself. I liked that the book teaches about the making of monuments, which is something many people don't know. I have learned many new things from this book. The photographs really help to show what the book is talking about, and show the monument, as well as pictures of the real Martin Luther King, Jr. I would definitely recommend this book to everyone who enjoys learning new things.
