Letter to My Daughter Overview

For a world of devoted readers, a much-awaited new volume of absorbing stories and inspirational wisdom from one of our best-loved writers.

Dedicated to the daughter she never had but sees all around her, Letter to My Daughter reveals Maya Angelou’s path to living well and living a life with meaning. Told in her own inimitable style, this book transcends genres and categories: guidebook, memoir, poetry, and pure delight.

Here in short spellbinding essays are glimpses of the tumultuous life that led Angelou to an exalted place in American letters and taught her lessons in compassion and fortitude: how she was brought up by her indomitable grandmother in segregated Arkansas, taken in at thirteen by her more worldly and less religious mother, and grew to be an awkward, six-foot-tall teenager whose first experience of loveless sex paradoxically left her with her greatest gift, a son.

Whether she is recalling such lost friends as Coretta Scott King and Ossie Davis, extolling honesty, decrying vulgarity, explaining why becoming a Christian is a “lifelong endeavor,” or simply singing the praises of a meal of red rice–Maya Angelou writes from the heart to millions of women she considers her extended family.

Like the rest of her remarkable work, Letter to My Daughter entertains and teaches; it is a book to cherish, savor, re-read, and share.

“I gave birth to one child, a son, but I have thousands of daughters. You are Black and White, Jewish and Muslim, Asian, Spanish speaking, Native Americans and Aleut. You are fat and thin and pretty and plain, gay and straight, educated and unlettered, and I am speaking to you all. Here is my offering to you.”

Here are some customary gifts a mother would appreciate.

1. A cashmere sweater

Pamper your mom with the finest sweater possible. Luxurious cashmere would keep her warm straight through the cold months and would make a marvellous Christmas present. This would cost you money though.

2. A string of pearls

A customary gift for mom from a son or daughter who wants to really pamper her by splurging on jewelry. Those pearls would look lovely on her. It would go with her favourite outfit and is a excellent that is thorough for her. A worthwhile splurge if you have the cash.

3. A handmade photoframe with a special photo.

Money can't buy everything. Memories are costly and can be captured in photographs. You could make your own photo frame, decorate and personalize it yourself and frame a photo that captures a special occasion you and your mother spend together. It wouldn't cost much money, but it will cost you time.

4. Morning meal in bed

Mom takes care of the entire house everyday. Surprise her with breakfast. Make sure you clean up the mess before you bring her breakfast. Make it a double surprise with a spotless kitchen as well.

5. Dinner out so she need not cook.

If she cooks Dinner everyday, give her a break. Take her out to Dinner at her favourite restaurant.

6. A maid for a day.

Can you hire a maid to do the housework for her for a day? That would cost money.
If you are broke, you could surprise your mother by doing the housework for her while she has Morning meal in bed.

7. A heart shaped locket

Heart shaped lockets are lovely gifts for loved ones. Give your mom a lovely locket with a photo of the family.

8. A mink coat

That is the ultimate splurge. If you have cash to burn, thrill her with it. If not, skip this. Your mom will not want you to get in debt over a gift for her.

9. A book you put together for her.

Can you write? A collection of poems you wrote for her would be wonderful. Or you could scan in photos of special moments and type small notes to her and put these together into a one-of-a-kind book for her. You could use Print on request services like the one at to give her a pro book like something from the bookstores, written by you for her.

10. Something to help her make quick, healthy meals easily.
I propose gt express [] for a kitchen machine that lets her make great meals with minimal effort.
