    1. Juxtaposing the moving words of Martin Luther King, Jr and the melodic tones of Mahalia Jackson, this book provides background information about the two while describing their involvement in the civil rights movement and their friendship. The book makes it clear that inspiration and motivation for change come from many sources. The author's pitch-perfect prose and the marvelous watercolor and India ink illustrations include snippets from both of their lives. The pairing of the two provides a fre [...]


    2. This book depicts the relationship between the speech and music of the 1950s-1960s, in Louisiana. The watercolor art is done by New York Times bestselling Husband-and-wife team. The ties of all three people are evident and well represent the African culture and Americans. It speaks well of the civil rights movement, but also the arts. Great for Martin Luther King Jr. Day.(2013). Publishers Weekly. booksinprint/DetailedV#Wayne Public Library1. What talents did Martin Luther King Jr. and Mahalia J [...]


    3. I love picture books like this with a great vantage point of history, poetic language, and research and resources at the end.


    4. Text: 4 starsIllustrations: 5 starsBeautifully illustrated nonfiction picture book about the collaboration between Martin Luther King Jr. and Mahalia Jackson, and the motivation they jointly provided for the civil rights movement in the 1960s. More of an artistic and inspirational book than a biography. Includes a civil rights timeline and suggested further reading.


    5. A beautiful picture book that looks at the March on Washington and King’s “I Have a Dream” speech from a different angle. Andrea Pinkney has chosen a moment in history and examines the relationship and path that led up to it. Interestingly, she uses the idea of a path or journey in both a literal and metaphorical way. The book begins and ends with signposts and directions. Brian Pinkney’s illustrations illuminate this by showing a swirling path- sometimes an artistic flourish, sometimes [...]


    6. Text Set 7: Martin & Mahalia: His Words Her Song written and illustrated by Andrea Davis Pickney and Brian Pickney is an artful, dual-biography of Martin Luther King and Mahalia Jackson. This is an interesting text, because it briefly explores the early life of King, which is not always spoken of in school, and at the same time, it brings to life the story of Mahalia Jackson, a less well-known figure I the Civil Rights Movement. It explores how their lives paralleled each other in many ways, [...]


    7. A beautiful non-fiction picture book of two people whose voices roused a movement of equality for all. Martin Luther King's speeches and Mahalia Jackson's singing worked together perfectly to light up many hearts & souls. Make sure to read this to your kiddos and then share a video of there message, such as this one: youtube/watch?v=odHqG


    8. (Book #3 of Text Set)Martin & Mahalia: His Words, Her Song, is written and illustrated by Andrea Davis Pickney and Brian Pickney and is the biography of both Martin Luther King and Mahalia Jackson. This book highlights the early life of MLK, which is a less-explored part of his life considering that most students only learn about his impact on the civil rights movement. However, it also ties in Mahalia Jackson, who is a lesser-known figure in the movement and someone about whom I knew nothin [...]


    9. Martin & Mahalia: His Words, Her Song wins the Self-Rescuing Princess Society seal of approval for showing the power of a single voice to inspire a nation, and how the joining of two remarkable voices change the world. This book is a beautiful bedtime story for younger children, as well as an excellent choice for early and middle grade readers.Read the full review: selfrescuingprincesssociety.b

The museum's collection chronicle the civil rights movement and contain video, documents of events including recordings of MLK speeches and Mahalia Jackson singing. Write six discussion questions using all six stages of Bloom’s Taxonomy1. Knowledge:When do the events of this book take place?2. Comprehension: Describe the method that [...]


    11. Plot Summary: We know that he had a dream but this book teaches you so much more. Martin Luther King Jr. grew up with a passion to preach just like his grandfather and father. He spoke the gospel. Mahalia grew up with a passion to sing. She sang the gospel. Together they shared the gospel through speaking and singing. They taught the gospel and about freedom! They both were African Americans so they barely had any freedom because of their race. So Martin spoke to a huge group of people about fre [...]


    12. Core Curricular Ties: Social Studies, Reading, ArtHow Could Be Used:This book could be used for learning about the Civil Rights and segregation. It gives a lot of information about two people that used their voices to speak up for change. They could also use compare and contrast to explain that even though they used their voices in different ways, they had the same goal for change. There are also some literary devices (his voice was steady as a train.) Brian Pinkney uses a lot of imagery and sym [...]


    13. This book is about the relationship between Martin Luther King Jr. and Mahalia Jackson and how music and speech goes hand in hand with one another. The moving words from Martin and the inspiring tones from Mahalia’s voice really elevates this book. The book provides background information about the two while describing their involvement in the civil rights movement. The theme in the book can be described as an inspirational or a motivational movement for change and how it can come from a varie [...]


    14. This book is about the relationship between Martin Luther King Jr. and Mahalia Jackson and how music and speech goes hand in hand with one another. The moving words from Martin and the inspiring tones from Mahalia’s voice really elevates this book. The illustrations are what really made this book enjoyable for me. The colors are so vibrant and I liked the difference between pages with Martin on them and pages with Mahalia on them and then the blending of the color when they had been on the sam [...]


    15. While Martin Luther King, Jr. spoke the gospel and led his people with his words, Mahalia Jackson sang the gospel and spread the word through her song. The Pinkneys show through inspiring words and pictures how these two pivotal figures in the Civil Rights Movement worked together to lead the American people with their voices. “Martin’s sermons and Mahalia’s spirituals told their listeners: YOU ARE HERE. On the path. Come along. Step proud. Stand strong. Be brave. Go with me. To a place, t [...]


    16. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Mahalia Jackson were partners in the civil rights movement. They both used their voices to make changes, inspiring people by using their gifts - he with his moving speeches and she with her songs. I love the last couple page spreads when the book culminates like a gospel song, singing "Amen, Amen, Glory, Glory, Hallelujah, Glory Hallelujah!" Brian Pinkney's illustrations are energetic, full of movement. A dove is flying throughout the story, symbolizing peace, and exp [...]


    17. Text to Text: I've always been very moved by Martin Luther King's I Have A Dream speech. This text made reference to this speech by referring to the final lines of the speech.Discussion Questions:1. What is Martin Luther King known for?2. What would you compare Martin and Mahalia?3. What would have resulted if Mahalia had not sang at Martin's speech?4. What is the relationship between Martin and Mahalia?5. What would happen if the listeners to the speech had turned violent?6. Can you assess the [...]


    18. Side-by-side views of what Martin and Mahalia contributed to the Civil Rights Movement. Watercolor artwork depicts key moments such as the March on Washington. I liked the way the page orientation changed to fit the content. The scene in which Martin looks out upon the crowd of thousands assembled at the Lincoln Memorial was stunning. By changing the page orientation for this scene readers get a better sense of the number of people who were witness to this historic moment. Also included are auth [...]


    19. I give this book five starts, hands down. I am amazed by this book, including the illustrations by Caldecott winner Brian Pinkney and the beautiful way that a true, historical story is portrayed by Coretta Scott King Award winner Andrea Davis Pinkney. I really want to find more of their books! This story about Martin Luther King Jr. and Mahalia Jackson could be used in such a multitude of ways in the classroom for any age, including studies on the Civil Rights movement, a music appreciation stud [...]


    20. Another powerful book from the Pinkney team! This book draws parallels between the preaching/speaking voice of Martin Luther King, Jr. and the singing voice of Mahalia Jackson. Both grew up in the black church in the South during segregation. Both learned to use their voices to praise God, as well as work for justice. They began to work together during the Montgomery Bus Boycott, and both "performed" during the March on Washington. A powerful comparison. Back matter includes a bibliography, a di [...]


    21. The friendship between Martin Luther King Jr. and Mahalia Jackson grew to be an important partnership in the civil rights movement. In a book that is all about two voices' power to move people (in a largely gospel way), Brian Pinkney's illustrations do a fine job showing this in a visual way, even changing the orientation of the book at times. There are plenty of books about MLK Jr and this one takes a different angle, which is nice. "Mahalia's voice was brass and butter. Strong and smooth at th [...]


    22. This book is beautifully written and poignantly illustrated. It is an account of Dr. Martin Luther King's life and how he and Mahalia Jackson combined their skills and talents in the common purpose of gaining equality for black people in the United States. They worked tirelessly in their efforts, and it is lovely to have Mahalia's story be told. Words are colored so as to jump off the page and emphasize the author's purpose. Beautiful!


    23. A nice poetic story of the friendship between Martin Luther King Jr. and Mahalia Jackson. The Pinkneys (Andrea Davis & Brian) have written and illustratd another winner. Brian Pinkney's use of watercolors instead of his signature scratchboard designs is a nice fit for this story. A healthy amount of backmatter gives kids enough information about the times to pique their curiosity and maybe go off on their own to learn more. A great read.


    24. Beautifully intertwines brief stories of Martin Luther King Jr and Mahalia Jackson's lives, leading up to the March on Washington DC in 1963 where they were both key speakers (or singer). Bright colorful swirling art, with a vertical "centerfold" (to best view the center two-page spread you have to turn book sideways). Is a "vignette" of the lives of these two significant African American figures in American history.


    25. Andrea Davis Pinkney tells the story of Martin and Mahalia. They were both born with the gift of the gospel-one has the gift of speaking and one has the gift of singing. They were both partners in The Civil Rights Movement and fought segregation. They stood united on the March on Washington to fight for jobs and freedom. My favorite part about this book is the illustrations. The paintings are made of transparent water color and Indian ink.


    26. This picture book celebration of two civil rights icons is very brief, but can serve as a nice introduction to the subject for primary graders. A great readaloud for the MLK, Jr. Holiday, pair this with musical recordings by Mahalia Jackson. The narrative describes how each as a child was brought up to advocate for civil rights as part of their church experiences. The watercolor illustrations have energy and depict their faces realistically. A good book to offer Sunday School teachers as well.


    27. Every child learns about Martin Luther King and his famous "I Have a Dream" speech at the March on Washington. This story traces King's well-known story and adds the story of Mahalia Jackson, a gospel singer. I loved the fresh take and beautiful parallelism of the story. This is definitely a book I'll be adding to my elementary school collection and one that I will recommend to teachers.


    28. Martin & Mahalia is a beautiful story about the civil rights movement and two leaders, Martin Luther King Jr. and Mahalia Jackson, and how they used their voices to promote the message of hope and peace. Together they shared their dreams for the crows at the March on Washington.Martin & Mahalia promotes vocabulary, phonological awareness and print awareness.


    29. This is a very well done non-fiction book about Martin Luther King Jr and Mahalia Jackson and the Civil Rights movements. However, I think my favorite thing about this book is the illustrations. They are beautiful, and somehow manage to capture the energy that one imagines came from Martin Luther King Jr's speeches and Mahalia Jackson's music.


    30. One of the best books for young children I have read on Martin Luther King, Jr. and his march on Washington. This book shares some of what the civil right movement was all about by illustrating Jim Crow laws and the treatment of african-americans I like how certain words were large, bold, and in color to express the importance. Those words could lead to a writing project on civil rights.
