One of the best books that I used every year in my classroom was Martin’s Big Words.
The children would interpret the meaning of these words in their writings and illustrations. It was always very inspirational to hear the children talk about showing love, and not hate.
I pulled this book out today to celebrate a man whose words are so relevant to today’s dangerous political climate.
MLK’s words: “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”
