Daring David Remembering Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Daring David Remembering Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.


David and his family from Ghana are ringing in the New Year. They are also celebrating the last two days of Kwanzaa. Kwanzaa is a holiday that celebrates African American culture. On both days, they lit a candle on the Kinara candleholder and had engaging conversations about the celebration. After his family returns to Ghana, David returns to school. Mrs. Mitchell gives the class another assignment, which is to think of some activities to honor the life and ideals of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Once again, the students step up to the challenge! Mrs. Phillips does her part by writing three short plays about the life of Dr. King.

About the Author:

Linda Taylor taps into her twenty-five years as a schoolteacher to write books that inspire students to acknowledge their feelings and work together to solve problems. Throughout her career as a teacher and more recently as an author, Linda has been passionate about nurturing children and giving them the skills to be the best they can be. Linda is also the author of the Amazing Annabelle series published by Lightswitch Learning.


“As educators, teachers strive to create a classroom environment that is not only safe but also comfortable and caring. This is a goal especially in the elementary grades because we realize that this type of environment in the primary years is important to setting the stage for a positive learning experience in the educational journey of our youth. This environment usually stems from and mimics our family life at home. Educator and author Linda Taylor has once again created an encouraging positive story in the Daring David series. I enjoyed reading the book in the series entitled, Remembering Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., which talked about celebrating family as a loving unit. It reminds us how special a family’s respect for each other is because it leads to a happy, loving environment in which everyone feels important and included. Once again, Linda Taylor’s Daring David series, as in the Amazing Annabelle series, presents strong, encouraging, caring characters who are positive role models. Congratulations again, Linda Taylor, and continued success!”
