“Life Doesn’t Frighten Me At All’ is a wonderful way to expose your child to great poetry and high art. Coupling the paintings of Jean-Paul Basquiat with the powerful words of Maya Angelou, the text is a great foray into artistry in a way that is totally approachable. It encourages bravery and strength and ends with a wonderful biography of Angelou to deepen the poem. It’s a great read for any budding artist or poetic soul, and it encourages facing fear and finding inner strength. It’s a “go to” text before a big moment to help ease the jitters and evoke one’s inner power. https://www.amazon.com/Life-Doesnt-Frighten-Maya-Angelou/dp/1556702884/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1490129842&sr=8-1&keywords=life+doesnt+frighten+me
