Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

Born in Missouri in 1928, Maya Angelou had a difficult childhood. Jim Crow laws segregated blacks and whites in the South. Her family life was unstable at times. But much like her poem, Still I Rise, Angelou was able to lift herself out of her situation and flourish. She moved to California and became the first black and first female streetcar operator before following her interest in dance. She became a professional performer in her twenties and toured the U.S. and Europe as an opera star and calypso dancer. But Angelou's writing became her defining talent. Her poems and books, including I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, brought her international acclaim.

   Wonderful book! Meant for ages 8-10 but can be read to younger children if you "censor" a bit.
I've seen the second and third seasons, and I love them both. This is the first time I have bought a book in the series, but I am not buying more. Now she is eager to read about Frida Kahlo, she said. These books are really focused toward age 8-10, and there were some content that I chose to skip over because my 5 yo is not mature enough for it yet. But I was able to read her entire book. I wanted to introduce her to the treasure that was Maya Angelou, and this book was wonderful, too, she said. I also felt that, at her age, reading a longer, bigger book over the course of several weeks helps build the skill of sustaining interest in a topic.
   Love this entire series of books and plan to purchase ...
I'm planning to purchase many more. The book is written for the younger reader and is also available in hardback. Writer gives enough detail to highlight the life persons by not drag the facts out with a lot of unnecessary adjectives.
   Great read!
In her honor, my daughter was assigned a Maya Angelou quote for Black History Month. This biography was perfect for my little reader to learn more about this great writer. Even though the book touches on some of the more tragic moments in Ms. Angelou's life, it is very age-appropriate.
   Great book great price
She loved it, the show's creator and executive producer said. Very informative book. Great for school reports, homework help, and even a few fun facts! I ended up buying a lot more of them. Will continue buying, he said.
   Easy for children to read.
I would recommend this seller to anyone.
