The very first book to ever be recognized with a Coretta Scott King Award was Martin Luther King, Jr.: Man of Peace by Lillie Patterson.
The Words of Martin Luther King, Jr., compiled by Coretta Scott King, received a special citation in 1984.
Lillie Patterson received an Author Honor in 1990 for Martin Luther King, Jr., and the Freedom Movement.
A title I especially like to recommend for younger children, Martin’s Big Words
by Doreen Rappaport, features actual quotations from Dr. King with amazing collages by Bryan Collier which received the 2002 Illustrator Honor.
