From Booklist

Oprah: a one-word name that’s a magnet for worldwide attention. Although young biographies exist about this phenomenal woman, this picture-book account focuses solely on her childhood. An author’s note at the beginning sets the stage for the true rags-to-riches story about a poor girl on a Mississippi pig farm who became an entertainer, entrepreneur, and philanthropist. Her grandmother, Hattie Mae, was the driving force in Oprah’s childhood, teaching her to read, write, and learn scripture at an early age. Oprah’s first public speaking was in church, and she was so good that adults called her the “Little Speaker.” The narrative portrays a bright, spunky child who didn’t let poverty or ridicule stand in her way, while the soft-edged, acrylic illustrations paint a determined, sober-faced girl. The book ends with Hattie Mae boiling laundry and calling to Oprah: “‘Come watch, child; you’ll need to know how to do this someday.’ And Oprah said to herself, ‘No I won’t.’” Even with the obvious message and religious asides, this is sure to be popular. Grades 1-3. --Julie Cummins --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
