Human Development Degree, Book-loving aunt

This is a great introduction story to Maya Angelou. It's written to be very kid-friendly, and I love how it simply tells her story and sends the message that you can be anything you want to be. I also love that the pictures included little quotes from her writing on a few of the pages.
