This title, by Lisa Beringer McKissack and Frederick L. McKissack, Jr. was reviewed in the 6/1/09 issue of SLJ. The full review can be found by clicking on the title link.
"This book encourages readers to count demonstrators, flags, presidents, and buttons in photographs associated with the civil rights leader. Numbers are featured as numerals labeling people and objects in the illustrations and as bold words in the text. The book discusses King's civil rights work, personal sacrifice, and legacy, including the current-day volunteer movement centered on his holiday."
