Maya Angelou brought her eclat to the ‘jewel of the Blue Ridge,’ Madison County.  She was not showy, but a stunning sort of brilliant.  Her reputation brought a reverent silence over the auditorium.  She spoke, we listened.  She joked, we laugh.  She was honest, we cried.  I feel honored to have been in her presence, basking in her eclat.
Any book that helps a child to form a habit of reading, to make reading one of his deep and continuing needs, is good for him.
“If you find it in your heart to care for somebody else, you will have succeeded.”
— Maya Angelou
