As Good As Anybody

The Children's Book Review

"As Good As Anybody" by Richard Michelson with illustrations by Raul Colon (Knopf, $16.99, 40 pages) is part history lesson, part inspirational story, part primer on social justice and all worthy reading and picture viewing. This is a keeper.

The book for ages 6-10 is focused on Martin Luther King and Abraham Joshua Heschel's  "Amazing March Toward Freedom," as the sub-title announces. It goes on to relate the story of the Baptist minister and the Jewish rabbi who became close friends and had the same dreams of equality and justice for all people.

"As Good As Anybody" tells the inspirational story that never grows old, that is as timely now as it was in the time of King and Heschel. Enhanced greatly by the precise and poignant language of Michelson and the moving and colorful art of Colon - this is a book for gift giving, for savoring, for reading aloud. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
