October Poet of the Month: Maya Angelou

We did read many books by Maya Angelou this month, but we did read a couple. The kids both really liked her poems and are definitely interested in reading more of them. This, of course, is exactly why I did this poetry challenge this year, to expose them to a variety of poets & styles in hopes that they'd gain an interest and want to read poetry on their own. I think it has served its purpose well.
