Informative, well-crafted…

Jawando brings African-American author, poet, playwright, and civil rights activist Maya Angelou’s biography as the second book in Little Guides to Great Lives series: small guides introducing children to the most inspiring figures from history in a fun way. Jawando instills her simple narrative with interesting realities of Maya Angelou’s life as the former used her voice and her art to overcome prejudice and difficulty in her life. From working as a tram conductor to reciting her poetry at presidential inaugurations, Angelou came a long way and cut an impressive figure. The glossary for difficult words in the back makes for an extra bonus along with beautiful illustrations. A well-researched, informative biography that sheds plenty of light on the great author’s life.
