Every year on the third Monday of January, the United States observes Martin Luther King Jr. Day (or MLK Jr. Day) in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. For most, it just means a day off from school and a three day weekend. Now, as a mom, it presents an opportunity to get in a day of edutainment (Educational and entertainment) with Sweet B and Squeaker. This year, I’m sharing a list of books and a printable pack for MLK Jr. Day. The books are divided by recommended age group and the mini printable pack contains pages that are suitable for multiple ages. Don’t feel pressured to use all of the pages.
And if you’re looking for even more ideas, be sure to check out my MLK Jr. Day board on Pinterest.
