Phil Jensen | 19 comments Great book! Appropriate for kids? Maybe high schoolers? This is one of those that makes me wonder about the mission behind the CSKs. They often seem to be more teen-oriented than the Newberys.

I also like My Painted House, My Friendly Chicken, and Me by Maya Angelou with photographs by Margaret Courtney-Clarke is a story of Thandi, an Ndebele girl in South African. She is eight years old and her best friend is a chicken.
Full color photographs bring us into her village life and brings her village life closer to us building empathy and bridges.
This book gives a another look into Maya Angelou's works.
Age Range: 3 - 7 years
Grade Level: Preschool - 2
