In honor of Martin Luther King Jr., we have put together a bundle of books to celebrate his life and incredible impact on the world. This bundle includes a beautiful biography picture book and other stories with meaningful messages that, we believe, are in line with King's mission written by black authors.

Martin's Big Words: The Life of Martin Luther King Jr. - In this book, author and historian Doreen Rappaport uses King's own words to tell his story and continue to inspire children with his profound message.

Magnificent Homespun Brown: A Celebration - This beautifully told story is a true celebration of love for oneself in one's own skin.

Mae Among the Stars - This is based on the story of Mae Jemison, the first African American to travel to space. It is such an inspiring story for us all.

Bedtime Inspirational Stories - One of my personal favorites! This compilation of inspiring stories about 50 amazing black heroes is such a special way to end the day.

Harlem Grown - I get chills of inspiration reading this story. It is based on a true story about a group of underserved school kids turning a parking lot into a garden which turned into a movement.

The 1619 Project: Born on the Water - This book is an incredible story of the black resistance group in the United States fighting against slavery. Not only is it a story about slavery, but it also teaches children the importance of hope and standing up for what you believe in.
