Letter to My Daughter

Maya Angelou's Letter To My Daughter is one of my favourite books. She is such a wise inspiring woman, and although she didn't have a daughter herself, she connects to women all over, seeing them all as her daughters.

This book is filled with stories of her life - and such an interesting one, and the lessons she has learned along the way. Sometime funny, sometimes very moving, and sometimes difficult. Maya Angelou has such a way with words, and despite some extremely difficult times, she has gained wisdom and moved on.

I particularly remember her saying something about, us having no control over the events of our lives, but we can control how we react, we do not need to be reduced to a victim.

She encourages women to inspire other women, to be authentic, to be courageous, and to live life boldly. What a wonderful gift that is to pass on to our daughters.

One of my favorite poems of hers (not in this book) is Phenomenal Woman, it is just awesome, and her humour, her power, her wisdom are encapsulated in this poem.

I would highly recommend her Letter to My Daughter, you won't be disappointed, it would make a wonderful gift for a dear friend, or your own daughter.

Click N Kids would have to be one of my subscribers most popular programs, and from what they say, it is mostly because the kids have fun while they are learning. In fact they don't even realize they are learning! Click N kids are using the Looney Tune Characters now in their phonics program, which of course kids just love.
