Reviewed by School Library Journal Reviews (SLJ Reviews 2008 April)

K-Gr 1— A first-grade class takes a field trip to a museum and learns about Doctor King. Large font and phrase repetition build fluency and word recognition. Appealing cartoon illustrations in a soothing palette enhance the text. Many are on full spreads, with students envisioning their dreams as they put them down on paper. This book is a good choice for teachers looking to illustrate the "I have a dream…" concept via fiction rather than nonfiction.—Colleen D. Bocka, Nathaniel Rochester Community School, Rochester, NY
