COMMUNITY REVIEWS

This book is a great kids' book submitted by janelizlynch on June 28, 2020, 7:53pm I am six years old and I liked this book because it was sweet. Maya Angelou was brave, she was important, and she spoke up for herself. She reminded me of other great leaders and Americans like Martin Luther King, Jr.

As a girl, Maya Angelou was treated unfairly. She started to use her voice but then her mom's boyfriend attacked her. And then, she was so afraid to use her voice she never used it. But then one of her grandmother's friend's helped her understand how to make the words come alive. Then she started to talk and talk. As she got older, someone told her that she couldn't be a lot of things. But she persisted! She thought she could be anything as much as she wanted. She was a lot of things: a train conductor, a dancer and singer, a world traveler. She learned lots of languages. She did all sorts of things. Then, she decided she wanted to be a writer. She wrote a book about her story. Now she was telling the whole world about her favorite thing: hope.

Great book for the kiddos! submitted by kerenemoore on July 17, 2021, 11:31am Add this and other multicultural books about exceptional people to your kid's reading collection! I love being able to share a small piece of people who contributed to who I am today. Maya Angelou is one of those many people. It may not be much (it's a picture book), but placing these fugue in your child's background from day one gives them a more well-rounded view of the world.
