October 2019 Book of the Month
A brief guide capturing the courage and creativity of the exceptional African American author, poet, playwright, and civil rights activist. Maya Angelou used her tremendous writing talent to get her voice, and the voice of millions of other African Americans, listened too as she supported many important causes including the Civil Rights Movement.
From artists to aviators and scientists to revolutionaries, Little Guides to Great Lives is a series of handy, accessible guides, each beautifully depicted by a different illustrator. The guides introduce children to the most inspirational figures from history. Each features a timeline, glossary and index at the back of the book.
Maya Angelou, written by Danielle Jawando and illustrated by Noa Snir is a beautifully illustrated biography of a writer and civil rights campaigner. Maya Angelou was an African-American author, poet, playwright and civil rights activist. She wrote seven autobiographies, three books of essays, several books of poetry, and a long list of plays, films and television shows. Never taking ‘No’ for an answer, Maya used her voice and her art to overcome prejudice and difficulty and to become an inspiration to those around her and to future generations.
