Their names stand for the quest for justice and equality.Martin grew up in a loving family in the American South, at a time when this country was plagued by racial discrimination. He aimed to put a stop to it. He became a minister like his daddy, and he preached and marched for his cause.Abraham grew up in a loving family many years earlier, in a Europe that did not welcome Jews. He found a new home in America, where he became a respected rabbi like his father, carrying a message of peace and acceptance.Here is the story of two icons for social justice, how they formed a remarkable friendship and turned their personal experiences of discrimination into a message of love and equality for all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Way To Start Conversations with Your Kids This book is a favorite in our library - my 5.5 and 7 year olds love this one. If you're trying to raise socially aware kids, this book is fantastic to get them asking questions and opening discussion about topics that can be tricky to navigate.
