Twenty-five of Maya Angelou’s finest poems capture a range of emotions and experiences in this collection for young people, from the playful “Harlem Hopscotch” to the prideful “Me and My Work” to the soul-stirring “Still I Rise.” Award-winning artist Jerome Lagarrigue masterfully illustrates each verse, and renowned academic Dr. Edwin Graves Wilson, a longtime colleague of Dr. Angelou, has written the book’s introduction, introductions to the poems, and annotations.
