Publisher Comments:

This Level 4 book is appropriate for proficient readers. Free at Last! is a biography of slain civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr., who encouraged non-violent protest to fulfill his dream of an America where people would be judged by "the content of their character, not by the color of their skin." These 48-page books about fascinating subjects like pirates, mummies, and volcanoes are for proficient readers who can understand a rich vocabulary and challenging sentence structure. In addition to the stunning photographs, informative sidebars, and glossary, readers will find archival photographs and paintings. Averaging 4,500 to 5,000 words in length, Level 4 books are 40 percent pictures and 40 percent text. The Dorling Kindersley Readers combine an enticing visual layout with high-interest, easy-to-read stories to captivate and delight young bookworms who are just getting started.
