life-doesnt-frighten-me-250×309.jpgTo wrap up our day of books I thought I'd share one of my absolute favorites. It's hard to choose a favorite children's book but this one would have to be at the top of my list. I got this book when Cedar was tiny and he loves it. He loved it when he was two and he still loves it now. Maybe some of you have heard of it but I always say it's the best book you never heard of because no one I meet has heard of it. I always get this book as a gift if we have a child's birthday to go to and I don't know what to get. Life Doesn't Frighten Me by Maya Angelou with paintings by Jean-Michael Basquiat This is a beautiful book. Angelou and Basquiat's art of words and paint seem born to live togteher in this book. life_image1.gifSome parents I know feel that the stark artwork might scare children but every child I know has been fascinated by this book; both the poem and paintings. I certainly am. The poem is a great lesson for kids and the painting will inspire them to create their own art. If you don't have it you and your little are missing an amazing book experience. You can read this review, which captures this book perfectly.
