The King Holiday & the Inauguration of President Barack Obama

January 21, 2013 has been slated as the Inauguration date for President Barack Obama.  This happens to be the same date of the Dr. King federal holiday....this brings a smile to my face.     This is the second time in history that the King day holiday has coincided with a presidential inauguration.  The first was President Bill Clinton's second inauguration on Monday, Jan. 20, 1997. 

You know the teacher-librarian in me just had to prepare and share.  Below are some really nice resources for teachers and parents to celebrate the Dr. King Holiday and the 2013 Inauguration.  I think you will agree, this year's celebration will be extra special.  Click the links below to access the pages:
