5.0 out of 5 stars Life Doesn't Frighten Me at All, January 17, 2002
This review is from: Life Doesn't Frighten Me (Hardcover)
As an avid reader of Maya Angelou's works, I purchased this book as a gift for my 7 year old daughter, hoping to impart to her a fondness for my favorite author as well.
I must say, that beyond my expectations, I have helped to create a Maya fan. My daughter immediately took to the book, on Christmas Day, no less, amid hundreds of dollars worth of toys. We read the book about a dozen times in the first two days. She still reads it daily, and even took it to school to share with her class.
Maya's poem picks up on the fear and anxiety causing incidents of youth, and allows the child to tromp his/her fear into the ground. After reading it, my daughter felt fearless, realizing that she was the master of her emotion and was not at the mercy of 'scary things'.
I highly recommend this book, either for a child, or as a lover of art and poetry. Additionally, a tremendous collectible title for the future.
