This poetry collection from Maya Angelou, illustrated by Jerome Lagarrigue, includes 24 poems from this amazing poet. Each poem speaks to children on some level, addressing fears, thoughts, experiences, joys, and worries that many children have. The illustrations add to the mood of each poem.

I really loved the poems in this book, but I think that they may be too old for many elementary students. I think that these poems are mature, sophisticated and excellent discussion starters for middle and high school students. Using one of these poems in a Socratic Seminar format would be one way to use the book.

I like how this book though is that it is a retells Maya Angelou’s poems in an effort to make sure that children are able to read them. This poetry book will introduce children to a wonderful poets work. I do not exactly love the artwork but the poetry is the main star of the book.

The book has definitions of vocabulary that may be unfamiliar to children and reflection questions. The illustrations are beautiful and complement the poetry that only adds to the emotions that the text brings forth.… (more)
