Maya Angelou created a children's book series called "Maya's World." Each tale is about a different child, and each child is from a different country.
'When I was a little girl, / I looked around at my world. / It was small, so was I. / Then my world began to grow / With each child I came to know. / Now I try, / Now I dare / To make a new friend / Everywhere.'
