"And through his ears he sees more clearly than most people do with their eyes."
Poeticly wriiten and beautifully illlustrated, Little Stevie Wonder tells the story of how Stevland Judkins Morris Hardaway became famous. Despite being blind Stevie Wonder was a normal kid, with an exceptionality for music. He became a musical prodigy at the age of 10 and is still alive and singing today. ( )

Little Stevie Wonder is a poetic biography about how Stevie Wonder became to be what we know of him today. This beautiful story shows us how he overcame his disability to become one of the best musicians of our time. This book is very inspiring, telling us how hard Stevie worked to learn music and eventually become a professional musician. The story is told in a poetic way, using the lyrics and titles of his songs to tell his story. The illustrations are bright and beautiful, perfectly expressing the story and showcasing the story of Stevie Wonder. I enjoyed this book and think that young students will enjoy reading it as well.

The subject of this biography is Stevie Wonder. He is significant through the numerous popular songs he created that inspired people and promoted positive change through love. I learned that Stevie was blind his entire life. The book starts off when Stevie was a young child and it shows how he quickly adjusted to his disability and showed tremendous talent for understanding music. I also never knew that his full name is actually Stevland Judkins Morris Hardaway. Stevie Wonder even wrote a version of "Happy Birthday" for Martin Luther King, Jr.!
His music was celebrated by many people and is still well known today. The organization of this book goes back and forth between praising Stevie through a sort of lyrical/song form, followed by small paragraphs that give informational facts about his life. This was good for telling the reader factual information about him while also showing how his positive impact on affected the world around him. ( )

"Little Stevie Wonder" is about the life of Stevie Wonder and how he loved music from a very young age. In this bright and fun, picture book biography of his life, Stevie Wonders love for this craft and his greatness shine through. With a focus on his younger years, this book allows readers a glimpse into what the famous Stevie Wonder was like as a child. It's a good read for anyone looking to learn more about his life in a more engaging way. ( )

Little Stevie Wonder is about Stevie Wonder's life since he was born and how he was born to spread music to the world. The book comes with a CD that can be used to hear the song because through the book there is a little jingle that is said on every page about how Stevie is a lovely blind black boy that was born to love everyone. He's blind so he doesn't care what you look like, he wants to spread music and love across the world.

Eleven-year-old Stevland Judkins Morris Hardaway hit the big time when he signed a Motown recording contract. At the age of thirteen, Little Stevie Wonder had millions of fans dancing to the number-one song in the nation.

Little Stevie Wonder is the true story of a boy who lost his sight shortly after birth, grew up in Detroit, Michigan, and became one of the twentieth century’s most creative and influential musicians—an instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, musical innovator, and cultural activist.
