$9.00

As the month of January begins, Mrs. Mitchell introduces her class to the great civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. through discussions and media. Mrs. Phillips, the drama teacher, created a short skit about a historic event during the Civil Rights Movement that involved Dr. King and Rosa Parks.

As the students recreate the skit, it sparks a deeper conversation about the Civil Rights Movement, segregation, and the different mindsets that existed during that time period. Annabelle works together with her group to create a project that honors the life and ideals of Dr. Martin Luther King.

This book brings attention to the importance of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and why we celebrate his accomplishments on his special national holiday.

“Amazing Annabelle is truly an amazing character! She possesses personality traits that we can all strive for: self-confidence, perseverance, compassion, endurance and problem solving. She has such a wonderful outlook on life and finds the positive in any situation. What a great role model! This is a great character education story that can be read across the elementary grade levels. While reading the story, I was able to bring Annabelle to life in my mind. The illustrations are fabulous! I look forward to reading all of her adventures. Such a wonderful gift of storytelling. Well done!”
