by Melissa Newland and ATS students

In remembrance of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Arvon Township School (ATS) students read the popular book called “Martin’s Big Words,” and wrote their own big words to celebrate his life. This picture book biography of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., written by Doreen Rappaport, “brings his life and the profound nature of his message to young children through his own words.” In the book, Doreen Rappaport uses quotes from some of King’s most beloved speeches to tell the story of his life and his work in a simple, direct
way. To read more, subscribe to the L’Anse Sentinel online, or buy a print copy at our local retailers.
