life doesn’t frighten me

05/03/13 , , , , , , , , , ,


maya angelou‘s poetry joins jean-michael basquiat‘s art in “life doesn’t frighten me.”  the children’s book seeks to give kids strength in the face of things like scary animals & the dark:

Shadows on the wall
Noises down the hail
Life doesn’t frighten me at all

I go boo
Make them shoo
I make fun
Way they run
I won’t cry
So they fly
I just smile
They go wild

Life doesn’t frighten me at all.

listen to angelou read her poem (full lyrics here) as you scroll through some of basquiat’s accompanying illustrations (via brainpickings).  to see more, grab the book from your library/book store.
