Teaching kids about Martin Luther King Jr. through ereaders
My 1st grade daughter and nearly four-year-old son are now at the age where they can understand a bit about why the mail
doesn't come and kids have off school today. I'm looking forward to the beginning of important discussions about Martin Luther King Jr. and why his is a memory worth honoring.
I tracked down two very cool e-books about Dr. King that I
think they're really enjoy.
is an interactive early reader kids book available on the NOOKColor or
on the iPad via the NOOK for Kids iPad app
, and through easy to read text and
gorgeous artwork, highlights various events throughout King's life.
Older kids might enjoy Martin Luther King Jr.
by David Colbert (right) which discusses 10 important days in King's life, including, of course,
his famous "I have a dream" speech. You can purchase this book for NOOK
or it's also available on iTunes via the free iBooks app
for the iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch.
I doubt Dr. King could have imagined that his story would live on through something called an e-reader. What a great way to introduce them to a man who did so much for our country. -Kristen
