From an early age, Amanda Gorman read everything she could get her hands on, from books to cereal boxes. Growing up with an auditory processing disorder and a speech impediment, Amanda had to work hard, but ultimately she took great strength from her experiences. After hearing her teacher read aloud to the class, she knew that she wanted to become a poet, and nothing would stand in her way. At the age of 19, she became America's first-ever National Youth Poet Laureate. And, after performing her inspiring poem The Hill We Climb at the Presidential Inauguration in January 2021, she became an icon across the world.
In this gorgeous book from the Little People, BIG DREAMS series, kids can learn all about Amanda Gorman's love of the spoken word and how she learned to combine her poetry with activism! With stylish illustrations and additional facts at the back, this book is perfect to help young readers follow their own big dreams.
