"This short biography offers a brief look at the famous author, director, singer and actress Maya Angelou. It covers her childhood, involvement in the Civil Rights Movement, writing and honors without going into much detail in any one area. Each page of large-font text is followed or preceded by a full page photograph. At the end, there is a glossary of new or unfamiliar terms, and index, and websites where more information on Maya Angelou can be found, both of which are still up and running.
Recommended for grades 3 - 5" Erica said.
