Contents Notes from Mattie's publisher, "The award-winning poetry of young Mattie Stepanek has touched the lives of hundreds and thousands of people. Mattie writes movingly and courageously about life and death, love and loss, faith and hope, innocence and joy. His struggle with a rare form of muscular dystrophy has given him wisdom and insight, and his life, work, and message have been recognized by appearances on Oprah, The Today Show, and Good Morning America, and profiles in The Washington Post and The New York Times." And from Jimmy Carter, former U.S. President, "With wisdom and uncomplicated vision, Mattie reminds us how easy it is to forgive others, to find something amazing even in the most trivial things and to celebrate the little gifts of life each day."
Subject Children's poetry, American.
